  Easy Balsamic Barbeque Marinade 

Morgan Shepard

It’s finally here-Summer!! Pull out the grill & celebrate the warm weather! We modified Diana Rossen Worthington’s recipe using Villa Gabriella Organic 8 year aged balsamic vinegar di Modena & Villa Gabriella Organic extra virgin olive oil. No synthetic sugars or sweeteners, the balsamic’s naturally tangy flavors blend with fresh, full bodied olive oil for a tasty summer tradition. We chose NY strip steak, use any cut of beef, chicken, turkey, lamb or salmon.  Makes 4-8 servings
