And the secret ingredient is…..

I just spent some time with my parents and my dad made the most amazing carrots with my new favorite…..

mint!

Our neighbors have it growing wild and allow everyone to take some, so we’ve been trying to come up with new recipes.

It added a nice kick to steamed carrots and we’ve started using it in place of herbs like basil, just for a different flavor.

Another summery idea?

Green beans, tomatoes, olive oil, and lemon juice topped with some mint. Its my favorite summer side dish!
