  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sea or Kosher salt
  • 3 large shallots, coarsely chopped
  • 1 large bunch mint leaves

In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, 1/2 cup water and the sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Add the salt and stir until the sugar and salt are dissolved. Reduce the heat to low.

Put the shallots, mint and parsley in a food processor and pulse to finely chop. Transfer mixture to a gravy boat or container. Pour the hot brine over the shallot mixture. Cover and refrigerate or let stand at room temperature until ready to serve.
