I bought a jar of mint chutney at our new little Indian grocery store this week.  If you’ve ever eaten at an Indian restaurant, the Pudina, or mint chutney, is that green sauce they often serve in a small dish with the crisp now-forbidden chapati crackers before the meal.  Pudina is also used on their cucumber salads.  There are many brands of this Indian chutney and many recipes for it readily available on the internet.  If you’re lucky enough to find it at a local Asian market, most brands I’ve tried have been suitable, though not as good as homemade.  Just read the ingredients to be sure there is no sugar in it.  Traditionally, there will be none.  Today, for my lunch salad, I decided to create a salad dressing with this mint chutney.  This tasty Induction friendly dressing was the end result.  The bacon grease was an afterthought, but it added a LOT to the overall flavor to the final dressing, as you can imagine. 🙂
