Chimichurri (Argentinean Parsley and Garlic Sauce)

Recipe by threeovens

This is a regular condiment on every table in Argentina. It is drizzled on everything from grilled meats to potatoes and vegetables. This is similar to a version I had in an Argentinean restaurant. Some versions also include red pepper flakes, so feel free to add them on occasion.

Super quick to put together and an AMAZING marinade, dip, salad dressing and, if diluted with a little more water and a bit more olive oil, a great soup!!
