Sun-Dried Tomato Marinade

This zesty marinade brings many of the bright flavors associated with the countries near the Mediterranean Sea to the party. Do not substitute oil-packed tomatoes for the dried ones or you will not get the strongly flavored infusion described here.
  • 4 oz. sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/2 c. dry white wine
  • 1/2 c. olive oil
  • 1/2 c. red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. grated lemon peel
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. dried marjoram
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. salt

Using a sharp pair of kitchen shears, snip the tomatoes into little pieces. Place in a small microwavable bowl and cover with the white wine. Microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds and allow to infuse for 5 minutes. Place the contents of the bowl and the remaining ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Use as a marinade for chicken or pork.

  • Yields: about 2 cups
