TWO Low Sodium Marinades! GREEK and LATIN ~!

Friends! I haven’t purposely abandoned you! I have, however, taken a job. One that’s been keeping me far busier than expected – in a good way – as well as liberating me from the computer – also good. :)  I promise to continue posting, answering email, questions, comments, etc. as time permits.  Please, just be patient with me!  THANKS.

Today’s recipe is for two tasty and SUPER low-sodium marinades I found in a newspaper circular over the weekend. Their creator, Steven Petusevsky, is a wonderfully creative chef from Florida who’s written not only The American Diabetes Association Vegetarian Cookbook but The Whole Foods Market Cookbook as well. If you have time, check out his site, StevenPetusevsky.com; he offers other low-sodium recipes that sound amazing.

Now onto the marinades!
