    ~SarahBeth~'s Note:

    This is from Southern Living to go with Shrimp and Pasta Salad. Quite delicious as a sauce for grilled chicken. At the bottom of the directions are two other options offered by Southern Living as well. Personally the basil option is my favorite.

      At first taste I wasn't so sure about this, but I made it ahead and by the time it was ready to toss the salad, it had really developed some beautiful flavour. Based on what I had on hand, I used more tarragon and less mint - and I was really pleased with how it turned out. I almost never use canola oil in salad dressings, but here it works, the dressing was light and went with our delicate salad greens very nicely. I'm sure I'll make again when fresh herbs are in abundance.

      I made the second option with basil and it was great,in fact I liked it so much that I don't want to try the mint and tarragon. Just joking, I'm waiting to be able to grill again and I'll try it with chicken as suggested.

      Made exactly as posted, but I imagine decreasing the mint and increasing the tarragon and serving over some really nice grilled fish fillets! Lovely recipe! Thanks for sharing.
