This dip is somewhat inspired by American ranch dressing but there is no buttermilk or mayo here. Padron peppers are a common ingredient for tapas in Spain. They are usually very mild except that occasionally you can come across a hot one. So you can play a sort of chilli roulette with this...
I looked for a thread addressing herb and seasoning combinations and only found an old thread from 2017 about flavor combinations (ie: mint and lamb, etc). I am really interested in knowing what herbs and seasonings go well together. Of course I already know some basics such as pasta sauce...

Okay, so I know a lot of people use mint with lamb. I am not a fan of mint with meats. I generally marinade my lamb chops with EVOO and fresh rosemary, roasted garlic, and oregano. I don't have any of those herbs (fresh) on hand ATM. What I do have is fresh garlic, sage and thyme. Does...
I'm currently compiling a list of herbs & spices I don't have and refreshing my existing spices and have come across Epazote. I don't even know how to pronounce it, let alone know what to use it for. The literature I have suggest to use it in a similar manner to oregano.
I see the MG bought...

Borage is an edible herb which I have never heard of being used in cooking. It can be used in cooking, particularly with vegetables, especially cucumber. It is also often used in various beverages.
It also has some significant medicinal properties.
I doubt I'll get this made before the challenge ends, but I wanted to enter it anyway. We've made this multiple times, but not in a very long time. It could be a starter, part of a light lunch or a side.
