Fantastic sauce. So easy to make and so much better than the jars of sauce. Will definitely make again.

I was taught by my cookery teacher ( in the '60's) that a recipe should contain the title of the main ingredient ie coriander and mint sauce ! ! still it is good.

Made this for Christmas dinner and it is great. I don't usually like mint sauce but this is refreshing with a nice zing.
