Rosemary Citrus Turkey Rub for Thanksgiving

November 18, 2012

Thanksgiving is only a few days away, but some of my running friends were talking today about the best ways to prepare their Thanksgiving turkey. I mentioned to them, “Why not a turkey rub?” They all liked the idea of preparing a turkey rub. This Rosemary Citrus Rub is too easy for words. With only 5 ingredients, you can prepare a super easy fresh and healthy recipe for your holiday Thanksgiving turkey. I love the lemon zest, garlic and citrus combination on my turkey. I like to use this rub for chicken recipes and pork too. I am getting so exciting about Thanksgiving this year. Please leave a comment and tell me how yo make your Thanksgiving turkey. I’m always looking for new ideas.

2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary

Howdy, I do think your website could possibly be having browser compatibility problems. When I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in Internet Explorer, it's got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that, excellent website!
