A Versatile Thai-inspired Marinade

(Use it as a dressing too!)

If you are one the many who love the bold, fresh flavors of Thai food, this dressing/marinade is for you. This is a very flexible recipe that uses common ingredients you can find in your grocery store combined with fresh mint, That’s Tasty Lemongrass, Basil, and Garlic Purées, which are available in the produce section.
