If you need a great mint chimichurri recipe without cilantro or parsley, this recipe is it!  I was looking to make a fresh herb sauce this week for some protein we were grilling, but all the recipes I found online were just mint, water, and sugar (boring).  I wanted a little boldness, tanginess, spice, and flavor!  And the natural solution to bring all of those together: mint chimichurri. This mint sauce for lamb is a leveled up version of that boring mint jelly – it will WOW your palate.

Traditional chimichurri sauce is made with parsley and cilantro, but this mint version is a flavorful condiment and one of our favorite sauces!  It’s great for adding on top of roasted or grilled anything: vegetables, kebobs, meats, lamb recipes, or even rice. It’s one of our favorite recipes with mint!

This Mint Chimichurri Recipe Is:

  • Fresh
  • Bright
  • Sweet
  • Herby
  • Loaded with Flavor
  • Ready in 5 Minutes
  • Great for anything off the grill!

What’s the Best Food Processor for the Job?

We have this fantastic CuisinArt Food Processor that has lasted us years and years, so I have to say I’ve been very happy with it! It gets weekly use, and is great for chopping ingredients for sauces, making hummus, and pureeing vegetables.  It’s really basic and inexpensive and gets the job done!  I’d love to upgrade to this Ninja system eventually, which does practically everything!  But I’m pretty happy with our CuisinArt for now 🙂
