Mint Gremolata

Yield Makes about 1 cup
Gremolata is traditionally made with minced parsley, lemon, and garlic. Adding mint gives a fresh spring flavor that goes well with lamb.


  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, washed, drained, and stems removed
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 slices sourdough bread (crust removed), cubed (about 1 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 7 ingredients in a blender or food processor, and puree 30 seconds to 1 minute or until ingredients are granular, not smooth. (Pulse to avoid over-processing ingredients.) Scrape gremolata into a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately, or keep refrigerated in an airtight container up to 1 week.
