Set out 3 bowls large enough to hold one of the three vegetables. Divide the olive oil evenly between the three bowls. (Approximately 6-7 tbsp. in each bowl.) Add the chopped mint to one bowl, the basil and chopped garlic to another bowl and the crushed red pepper to the third.
This is a rendition of a classic antipasto or side vegetable, served in traditional Sicilian style . . . simply with little or no embellishments, allowing for the full flavors of the vegetables to come through. I believe that is one of the more important aspects of just about all Italian dishes. They keep the preparation and ingredients simple, yet bold enough to make the main ingredient robust and stand out in all its glory.
