Turkey Prep: Rosemary Citrus Rub

Nov 17, 2015
Alison Lewis

Want to try a new way to prepare your turkey this year? This Rosemary Citrus Rub is so simple and flavorful. With only 5 ingredients, you can prepare a super easy fresh and healthy recipe for your Thanksgiving turkey. I love the lemon zest, garlic and citrus and herb combination in this rub. You can use it on chicken, seafood and pork too. If you desire, prepare it ahead of time and store in a small Ziploc® Brand Snack Bag. I am getting so exciting about Thanksgiving this year. Please leave a comment and tell us how to make your Thanksgiving turkey.
