As you can see, I still have lots of mint in the garden, so we decided to have lamb chops with mint sauce for dinner tonight. I apologise in advance for the poor picture quality on this post, I had to use my phone and its got no flash on it and its "only" 3 megapixels - I remember the days (well a couple of years ago) when that was loads! Anyway, on with the mint sauce...
- Lots of fresh mint
- 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
- 3 tablespoons boiling water
- 1 tablespoon sugar
Pulse a couple of times in the mixer, and then blend until the mint is finely chopped (you can also do the chopping the old fashioned way - with a knife - but this is a lot quicker if you do have a blender or food processor).
You might need to add a little more liquid, depending on exactly how much mint you picked, but I wanted mine to be about this consistency here...
And what goes well with mint sauce? Lamb, obviously! So here it is, grilled lamb chops with mint sauce, new potatoes, coleslaw and freshly picked tomatoes.
