Spicy Mint Chutney

I feel very sure Jesus is going to give me a huge herb garden in heaven!  Any time I can make a sauce, dip or spread with fresh herbs it makes me very happy.   

Mint is often thought of as an herb to go with sweet treats but it makes for some great savory dishes.  This Spicy Mint Chutney pairs perfectly with my Bacon Wrapped Meatballs.  It's also really great with most any protein or as a garnish with roasted vegetables.
