Mint is one of our favorite herbs, and we usually have some in the house.  We add mint leaves to our tea, and sometimes just to a glass of hot water.  When I felt like we needed a change from our usual vinaigrette salad dressing, I chopped up some fresh mint leaves, dropped them into a mixture of oil and vinegar, and then added lemon.  The result was a cool, refreshing dressing with a hint of tartness – perfect for a crisp green salad.


1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

8-10 fresh mint leaves, finely choped

salt & coarsely ground pepper to taste


Combine the ingredients in a salad dressing shaker or a small jar with a tight fitting top. Shake well and pour over salad.

    What a refreshing change. I eat a salad every night and it’s great to find new tastes.

  2. Sounds like a nice fresh dressing. I’ll have to give it a try!
