Green Chutney

Green chutney is one of the most popular Indian accompaniments and it has a taste that is spicy, tangy, and slightly sweet.  It is typically served with appetizers such as samosas and kebabs, but it can also be used as a sandwich spread or as as a sauce for fish. There are many variations of green chutney but this one is my favorite  because it's my mom's recipe.

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 large bunch of washed cilantro

salt to taste
