Introducing your summer grilling secret weapon: marinade recipes. Laced with fresh herbs, citrus zest, fragrant aromatics and other flavor-enhancing ingredients, these homemade marinade ideas are the best way to infuse any protein (or vegetable!) with deliciousness from the inside-out. Plus, a good marinade keeps your grilled chicken moist and any steak recipe extra-juicy. Just 30 minutes in a marinade will improve the flavor and texture of your meal, but feel free to leave larger cuts of meat in the marinade for several hours (which makes these recipes a great start to a make ahead meal!).
