MINT AND CORIANDER SAUCE


Author Notes: In my opinion this Mint and coriander Sauce is essential at your BBQ party. Period. It is summery, fresh and aromatic – what else can you ask for?
If you have that “special” relationship with coriander that it doesn’t go anywhere near your mouth – change it to parsley.
