Small World, Big Taste: Cilantro-Mint Chutney

Chutneys are thick, spicy sauces of Indian origin that are used as condiments. This one, which requires no cooking, combines aromatic mint and cilantro leaves with hot peppers and sour citrus juice. It’s as good on home fries and chili as it is with poached fish or grilled chicken breast.
