This chutney is super-flavorful. Packed with cilantro and mint, it makes a big impact on breads, appetizers, roasted vegetables, or just spooned out of the container into your mouth! It has a great sweet-sour thing going on with the dates and onions. You can control the spiciness with the number of peppers and whether you de-seed and de-vein them.  

Makes about 1.75 cups

In a food processor or blender, add these and combine into a paste.

  • 2 cups fresh mint leaves, packed
