A good sauce has the ability to transform to any dish. Chimichurri is an herby Argentinian marinade. Typically used on meats but taste amazing on vegetables, any protein or a sandwich spread and dipping sauce. Usually based heavy on parsley it also lends well to other leafy greens. Instead of discarding the tops, we reap the benefits of the nutrient dense turnip greens with the intense bold flavor of chimichurri.
