Lime and Garlic Meat Marinade

Summer is upon us so I thought I'd post this fabulous marinade in honor for the grilling season. I made it last night and it was a hit with the whole family!

Lime and Garlic Marinade

1/2 c. olive oil
1/2 c. lime juice (I use a little less juice add in some of the zest)
1/4 c. water
1/4 c. dijon mustard
2 T. maple syrup
2 T. minced garlic
2 T. fresh minced basil (if you don’t have it on hand, omit. It still tastes great without)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Mix together and let meat marinade at least 30-45 minutes. Grill. I usually use this for pork chops but you could use it for chicken as well.
