Kiwi-Lime Marinade  

Makes 1 cup

Any combination of herbs, minced fruit or vegetables, extracts, and spices may be mixed with citrus juices, soy sauce, wine, or vinegar for steeping or marinating grill-bound food. Kiwi and papaya have enzymes that break down proteins, making them useful in tenderizing tougher cuts of beef.

• 2 kiwi fruit, peeled and mashed
• 1/4 cup soy sauce
• 1/2 cup orange juice
• Juice of 1 lime
• 3 tablespoons minced onion
• 2 tablespoons chopped fresh lemon balm

1. Combine all of the ingredients to form a smooth marinade.
2. Pour over meat or vegetable strips and refrigerate for 4 to 8 hours.
