I made this Cilantro Mint Sauce recipe to go along with some pretty fantastic Chicken and Rice Samosas.

But, once you try it, you might find yourself making it for all sorts of foods that need to be jazzed up.

The recipe is really just as easy as throwing the ingredients in a food processing and pushing the button.

Cilantro, mint, jalapenos, ginger, lime juice, garlic… we’re hitting a lot of good stuff here.

Just keep an eye on the consistency. Add a little more water if you want to or use a light hand.
