Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
Two days ago I invented a real taste treat. i made cole slaw with a dressing of vegetable oil and lemon juice. Then I put in some dried spearmint leaves. We had some and I thought, "Meh".

The next day we had spicy Mexican food, and I got ought the rest of the cole slaw. The spearmint had had time to infuse the entire dish. A mouthe
ful of that cold, minty cole slaw after spicy, tomatoey meat dish was an absolute treat.

I feel that sure that finely minced peppermint would taste as good.
