Make 5-Minute Mint Pesto to perk up new spring potatoes, pasta, turkey sandwiches and even scrambled eggs.

You can also learn why the more flavor a green plant has the stronger its antioxidant content (think peppery arugula, bold Brussels sprouts and strong herbs like mint!) Head on over to check out my recipe for New Potatoes with 5-Minute Pesto.
Do you use mint for cooking or just for cocktails?
