Chimichurri, an acidic herb-based sauce looks similar to pesto and is originally from Argentina. It is traditionally served on top of meat or fish but I love to dip sliced ciabatta bread in the extra chimichurri sauce. I could easily eat a whole loaf with it.
This herby, vinegary sauce makes for a great dressing for potato salad, dip for bread, topping for steak or marinade for chicken. It’s made from chopped herbs – while dried herbs are often reconstituted and used, I love the vibrancy of fresh herbs. While often compared to Italian pesto – it’s not as creamy. Chimichurri is made with chopped herbs and is more similar to an Italian salsa verde.
What’s in this Argentinian sauce?
