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.
