I decided to make a Cilantro Lime Marinade and it turned out absolutely delicious and one that I will be adding to our favorites list.


4 Tablespoons  Lime Juice

4 Tablespoons Olive Oil

4 Tablespoons  Cilantro minced

Pinch of Salt and Pepper

2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar

2 Tablespoons  Balsamic Vinegar

1 Garlic Clove minced

Easy as that…. Simple Money Saving Recipe
