Mediterranean Marinade

January 26, 2016

 I've been obsessed with gyros and Mediterranean flavors, as of late. I whisked up a delicious Mediterranean marinade last week and I used it to flavor some chicken for a weekend lunch a few days ago. Also happened upon a WONDERFUL tzatziki recipe that gave me straight up chills. I'll be putting a surprising twist on that later on to share with you all!


Mediterranean Marinade


Total Time: 5 minutes

Marinade Time: 2 hours - 2 days



- 1/2 cup red wine vinegar

- 1/2 cup olive oil

- 1/2 cup lemon juice

- 1 1/2 Tbsp coarse dijon mustard

- 1 Tbsp honey

- 1 tsp fresh ground pepper

- 1/2 tsp salt

- 1/4 tsp cloves

- 1/8 tsp cinnamon


1) Whisk all ingredients together and pour over desired meat. I like to use ziplock bags to marinade meat; get as much air out of the bag as possible to ensure quality contact with marinade. Marinade anywhere from 2 hours to 2 days. 


2) ENJOY and post with #perfectleehungry.
