What are some good savory uses of fresh mint other than putting it on lamb?

What are some good savory uses of fresh mint other than putting it on lamb? I love lamb but can't afford it too often, so I'm looking for other things to use my mint plants for.

    It's not savory but I really like it chopped up fine and put on top of vanilla ice cream. I grew some one year and was surprised how good that tasted. Making tea out of it, too, of course. Fresh and dried mint make good tea.

    Take some sweet peas, bring them to a simmer in sour cream, and add mint, salt, and pepper

      That sounds really interesting, I'll have to give that a go

      Somehow tea completely slipped my mind, another good idea

        Another one is watermelon salad
        Cube some watermelon, mix it with rocket, crumbled feta cheese, mint
        Dressing is vinegar, fish sauce or light soy sauce or both, sesame oil
        Garnish with sesame seed

    Google translate this: https://www.cookist.it/zucchine-alla-scapece/
    This is a typical summer side dish where I'm from. It's basically a salad. I read the recipe myself, looking only at the ingredients list, but it might tell you to either fry or grill/"barbecue" the zucchine slices. Either is fine but if you grill, add some oil after you've baptised* the zucchine in the vinegar, garlic and mint, just before serving.
    >*baptism is what we call what is basically marinating, but fine AFTER cooking something; I know it's weird and most people marinate before rather than after but I find it works better, imo

    If you cant buy lamb often look around for sheep or mutton, usually sells pretty cheap and still great, just have to cook it more.
    I buy minced sheep regularly from a local producer, cheaper than beef mince.

      WTF? Are you just spouting memes that Mutton was for the poor? Well you are wrong kiddo.

      Where do you live?
      Mutton is very hard to find now in the UK, Since the wool industry rapidly declined in the 1980's it's no longer cost effective to keep sheep, so sheep rarely get to live to 'Mutton Age' and are killed as Lambs.

      Lamb is my favourite meat, Mutton is a lot stronger and would be a treat but you can't seem to find it here in Bongland.

        Sweden, theres local farmer groups on Facebook that sell their stuff every 2 weeks in most towns and I buy the sheep/mutton from one of them.

          >Sweden
          I would have thought sheep production in Sweden would be even more of a challenge than England, let alone a Scandi country!

          But if mutton is cheaper than lamb in Sweden, then I take my hat off to you (and your sheep farmers) . . . .but I still have my doubts.

    It's a fine substitute anywhere you would use any kind of basil, and goes really well with cilantro anywhere you'd use that.

        Just mint on plain cous cous? Or is there a specific sauce made with mint?

          no mint is like a spice, find a recipe somewhere you'll see they use mint leaves, it has meat onions and some other stuff as well, check which recipe you like the most, it probably has other spices as welll idk, but couscous, meat, some veggies and mint seem to do the trick just fine

            I think it's the sandnigg couscous recipe you're looking for, if I'm not mistaken it does indeed have mint in it

    Use a small amount of mint whenever you're using basil. Not a lot, maybe one leaf of mint per 10 of basil.
