Mint Chimichurri

What goes great with grilled burgers? Chimichurri. Lamb loves mint, so even though the original recipe does not have mint, but mint + lamb = perfection. The first chimichurri I ever had was with mint, so why not? I added in all of the optional spices and it really pops.

Mint Chimichurri Sauce modified from Closet Cooking:

Makes 2 cups

1 c. mint (packed)
¼ c. parsley (packed)
¼ c. cilantro (packed)
1 Tb. fresh oregano (chopped, optional)
4 cloves garlic (peeled)
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
¼ tsp. cumin (optional)
¼ tsp. hot smoked paprika (optional)
¼ c. oil
2 Tb. white wine vinegar
½ lemon (juice and zest)
Salt and pepper to taste
Puree everything in a in a food processor. Put on food. This is awesome with lamb, but would be great just on toast or a veggie packed sandwich. It is full of ridiculous flavor.
