Notes

Please note that this recipe of green chutney is 100% customizable. You can make it with whatever greens you have. You can even make this chutney only with mint or coriander. Just remember to use fresh leaves always to get this color and flavor. You can also add the stems along with the leaves. Instead of peanuts, you can add any other nuts like almonds, pecans, or walnuts. You can also add garlic if you want. Adjust the consistency of the chutney by adding water based on your liking or the purpose. If using as a dip, it can be a little thin and if using as a spread, then it has to be thick. 
This versatile cilantro lime sauce can be stored in the fridge for a couple of days. Remember to store it in airtight containers. This chutney also freezes very well. You can also make a batch and freeze it for up to 6 months.  You can also make this advance in large portions and freeze it in ice cube trays. Store the frozen cubes in a zip-lock plastic bag and use as needed. This is a great way of using up all the greens before they begin to wilt and then freeze them. Also, avoid double-dipping from the main container with a saliva-contaminated spoon or food item, that'd be bad for your chutney! Always take out the amount you need and store the rest.
