An herb marinade is the secret to flavorful grilled beef and veggie kabobs.
Always marinate food in a nonmetal dish. Acid-based marinades, such as those with lemon juice and vinegar, can react with some metals and cause off-flavor in the food.
A dried herb such as oregano, tarragon or rosemary sprinkled over hot coals just before grilling adds fragrance and flavor to the food.
About 3/4 cup bottled Italian dressing makes a quick substitution for the homemade marinade.
