Ginger-Lime Marinade For Chicken Recipe – Food.com
Summertime is so hot in Texas and especially so this year. I was searching for a marinade recipe that contained Ginger and wasn’t too heavy. I found this recipe on Food.com and it’s really delicious and zesty. My chicken was tender and full of flavor. I doubled the recipe and use some of the mixture for salad dressing.
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 lime zest
- Mix all the ingredients together and marinate the chicken for at least 2 hours.
Farmer’s markets are my favorite place to go on Saturday mornings. There is a fantastic one in downtown Memphis that has a variety of heirloom tomatoes and organic lettuces. There’s even a new one in my little town of Collierville. I’m sure you have a great farmer’s market in your area too.
Homemade salad dressings take such little time to make and there are so many variations, but the results are non-comparable to store bought.
This vinaigrette can be used on salads, avocados, artichokes, tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, and so many other things. It’s a great marinade for chicken and steaks too!
1/2 cup celery hearts
1/2 cup green onions
1/4 cup Italian parsley
1/2 cup pimentos
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
3/4 cup good olive oil

dash of Tabasco
In your food processor or blender, grind into a fine mixture (not puree) celery, green onions, parsley and pimentos. Add vinegar, oil, Worcestershire, a touch of sugar, salt, and Tabasco. Mix well and chill until ready to use.
