this is the BEST sauce ever!! We've been to Aruba, Mexico, Costa Rica and Argentina in some of the best Argentinan restaurants and this is the best representative of the chimichurri sauce

so easy! i threw everything in the food processor and it was so delicious.. though next time i might cut back a little on the lemon, it was a bit sour!

We love this stuff and eat it on pretty much everything.
