Can I substitute dried peppermint for mint in recipes?

Hello!
I have a ton of dried peppermint from Frontier Market that I use for tea. Is this the same as the mint you find fresh in the store? I’m wondering if for recipes that add a bit of mint, if dried peppermint works or if it’s an entirely different thing. When a recipe calls for mint and says you can use dried mint, is dried peppermint ever okay for that purpose?

In this case I’m thinking of two recipes- a yogurt zucchini dip, and a cilantro chutney, that both have an option to add some fresh or dried mint.
