Healthy Grill Marinade

Posted on August 22, 2011 | by

With the dog days of summer still here, take advantage of outdoor barbecuing-and be sure to transform old-style fat and calorie-laden BBQs into healthy and light summer fare. The best tip for healthy grilling is to throw lots of those delicious summer veggies and fresh fruit onto the grill as a side to lean protein sources such as fish or skinless poultry. Looking to add some taste and pizazz to those grilled veggies and lean protein? Try this super-easy antioxidant herb infused mustard marinade!

Yield: 8 servings

    • Several sprigs of fresh rosemary
    • 1 cup tarragon vinegar
    • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • 6 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    • 2 tablespoons fresh garlic, minced
    • Dash salt
    • Dash pepper

Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl. Brush onto vegetables and lean protein and marinate before grilling. (You can also simply brush on during the last 10 minutes of grilling.)
