Okay, I haven't made this yet, but I totally do not get the addition of MINT in this recipe.  All the other ingredients make sense, but the mint...?  Can someone explain how that flavor fits in with the others?  It seems to stick out like a sore thumb to me.    ???


Oooooh, super tasty. Even though I think I left out the two most important ingredients (avocado and mint) for lack of having them around  :ohno:
Now I know what to do with all those dark leafy greens I get in my CSA box!  :)>>>
