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.
