You should already have a left-click menu button on the bottom left (Mint logo).

Edit: Unless you want to swap the two... Bridge to cross if there.

Off hand, then maybe look into 9menu. I've never used it, but it may be what you need as XFCE's context menu is built-in. Alternatively, you can use Fluxbox as your window manager. It's highly and easily configurable. You will lose certain ease-of-use and xfwm features, but you can customise Fluxbox to get most/all back.

You can just swap the window manager without needing to remove/purge XFCE coz XFCE is modular.
Failing that, you could also just use XFCE panels or another dock/panel app.
