We couldn't think of a dessert with lamb in the ingredients list. How about trying this fresh mint sauce accompaniment instead?

Fresh Mint Sauce

Home-made mint sauce is an unbeatable partner for roast spring lamb. It's very simple to make and can be prepared 2-3 hours before serving.

  • Vegetarian
  • Preparation time:10 minutes
  • Total time:10 minutes 

Serves: 8


  • 75ml red wine vinegar
  • 25g caster sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 40g fresh mint
  • 1 small red onion


  1. In a small bowl, mix together 75ml red wine vinegar, 25g caster sugar and a pinch of salt. Finely chop the leaves of 2 x 20g packs fresh mint and 1 small red onion, then stir into the vinegar. Chill until ready to serve.

Cook's tips

Try adding chopped cornichons or small capers to the fresh mint sauce for a change.
