Mint Chimichurri (No Cilantro)

The Herbeevore
This mint chimichurri is a bright and fresh sauce made with fresh mint, olive oil, garlic, vinegar, herbs, and no parsley! Great on grilled entrees like lamb, kabobs, vegetables, and meats. This sauce brightens up any dish with a sweet and herby finish, and is sweet, spicy, and garlicky too!
