A dollop of this vibrant herbal sauce is magic in soup and would also taste great with broiled salmon or lamb chops.
- 1 1/2 cups fresh mint leaves
- 1/3 cup shelled pistachios
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed and peeled
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons low-fat plain yogurt
- 1/8 teaspoon salt (optional)
- Process mint, pistachios and garlic in a food processor until finely chopped. With the motor running, gradually add oil, lemon juice and yogurt through the feed tube. Process until the mixture forms a paste. If using unsalted pistachios, add salt, if desired.
