Rachel Allen gets fresh with a minty salsa recipe for lamb, a super smoothie and a gin shot starter
Fresh, aromatic and full of flavour, mint is a herb with real personality. It’s perfect with lamb, but also makes a zingy smoothie and a refreshing shot
Magical mint is one of the most versatile herbs and is widely used in both savoury and sweet recipes. Prized for its medicinal properties, mint has been used for centuries in helping to treat digestive issues, headaches and inflammation. As well as being my favourite go-to herb for a fresh tea, mint is also hard to beat in cocktails, compotes, couscous dishes, and many more.
