Mint Memories

Mint grows like a weed, once it starts, one needs to take control or it will... I learned this from growing up with a father who has a green thumb.  This is also the reason I love mint, for the taste and the childhood memories.  As a kid we would pick the leaves and just suck on them.  Mint tea was plentiful, but in those days there weren't too many recipes using mint, not like today.  So when I saw this Thai inspired slaw recipe with cashews and mint from my favorite cooking blog,  Smitten Kitchen,  I knew it was for me and I hope for you...
