This was a wonderful sauce. So fresh and easy to make. I used it to marinate some venison steaks that were given to me and also served it on the side. Wonderful! Thank you Rita for sharing another winner.

A very good and versatile sauce and made in a few minutes. I have added it to barbque sauce to marinate ribs and served it on the side to jazz up chicken.
