This easy Cilantro Mint Chutney is perfect for dipping veggies, spreading on sandwiches, or adding a bright kick to any dish. Feel free to play with the proportions, using more lemon juice or mint if you'd like. Adding another chile or even a clove of garlic for a bolder flavor may be to your taste, too.
