Nothing says spring quite like fresh mint. Its flavor embodies everything of this blooming season -- light, fresh and bright. Its light green color is a welcome addition to our plates, especially after all the months we've spent looking at winter produce. Mint goes very well in lemonades, teas and cocktails, but we also really like cooking with this fresh herb.
Throwing fresh mint into a salad will liven up the flavors, and adding it to a pasta can make the dish feel much, much fresher. But the best part is, it's absolutely delicious. And we just can't get enough of it; we're always looking for ways to throw it into whatever meal we can think of. If you're ready to enjoy the fresh flavors of this herb, click through the slideshow below for some culinary inspiration. From Orecchiette with Pancetta, Peas and Mint to a simple Spring Peas with Mint recipe, there's a recipe for every mint lover.
