Basil Mint Sauce


Basil Mint Sauce is great to have on hand and so versatile.  A taste of freshness.  I have used this combination as a marinade for roast Pork, Lamb or Chicken.  I have used it fresh as a dipping sauce for barbecued Lamb Chops and oven-baked Chicken Wings. I have put it into a Pasta Salad along with fresh radish, cucumbers and spring onions. Tossed with potato wedges for oven-baked fries. Poured over chopped Tomatoes with fresh bocconcini or mozzarella cheese. Recently I have used it as a relish over gourmet burgers with a touch of horseradish.

  • 1 bunch fresh mint
  • 1 bunch fresh basil or lemon basil (my favourite variety of basil)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon squeezed (juice)
  • 1 small clove garlic

Blend well in food processor.  Let sauce sit for an hour at least before using.  Store in a glass jar in the fridge.

Enjoy!  L.L
