    Lavender Lynn's Note:

    This bright green salsa goes well with just about anything - empanadas, potatoes, vegetables, grilled meats, etc. It's a bit like chimichurri sauce, but without the garlic - scallions add a milder onion flavor instead. Recipe is from About.com South American Food

      Wash the cilantro and dry thoroughly. Separate the leaves from the stems, and place the leaves in a food processor or blender, discarding stems.

      Whisk together the vinegar and the juice from 1/2 of the lime. Whisk in the olive oil. Stir the chopped cilantro, green onions and chile pepper mixture into the oil and lime juice. Taste for seasoning and add salt to taste, or more lime juice if desired.

      Very good sauce. I found it very similar to a chimichurri because of the oil.
