Fresh mint so rarely gets its due in America. We gladly pair it with chocolate and fruit, but it almost never makes appearances in savory dishes. But the rest of the world knows better, adding it with abandon to all manner of savory dairy, vegetable and meat dishes. That's because a little bit of its naturally sweet, herby flavor can go a long way to playing up the savory elements of a dish.

To demonstrate what a delicious addition mint can be to meaty dishes, we created these chicken wraps that are seasoned with salty capers and olives, a sweet hit of honey and a splash of lemon -- all flavors that meld wonderfully with fresh mint.
