Chimichurri

I love this sauce. I kid you not I made it for weeks and doused it on everything from eggs, rice and salads, to steak and empanadas. It’s packed with garlic and flavor and can be used on anything. If you love it as much as I do you might just spread it on a piece of toast like butter! Did I mention this recipe is super easy?
