MINT PESTO YOGURT SAUCE
This herbaceous condiment is perfect to serve with toasted bread, grilled meat or as a dip. Here, we recommend serving it with lamb. Thanks to the sour yogurt, sweet mint and bright lemon, it has the ability to stand up to lamb’s gamey flavour. Pistachios also play a role, adding a smooth nutty richness. Keep it in your fridge for up to three days and discover all its possibilities.
