From the "Seven Fires" Argentinian cookbook. This pesto-like sauce is offered in many restaurants as an alternative to chimichurri or salsa criolla. Use it on Chicken Chimehuin and other grilled meats.

We make this in large batches and use as a dip with fresh italian or french bread. Similar to Pesto. I do about a head of garlic to one bunch of italian parsley, and add salt to taste. The fresh garlic gives it a nice spicy tang. Excellent stuff.
