Mint marinade and Mint Pesto

Summer is here, and BBQ season has started! This marinade is perfect for lamb, such as the kebabs we made last night. Serve with a couscous and the Mint Pesto.

Mint Marinade

1 cup olive oil
1 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup honey
10 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup fresh mint, minced
1/2 cup fresh parsley, minced
1/2 cup fresh oregano, minced

Mix all the ingredients together well and pour over the lamb (or any other meat) and marinate for at least 3 hours.

When making lamb skewers, alternate the pieces of meat with fresh peach, onion and red peppers!

Mint Pesto

1/2 cup fresh mint
2 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
3/4 cup olive oil
Salt and pepper

Place all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until all pureed. Serve with the grilled marinated lamb.
