Today I am sharing a fabulous (and fabulously easy) sauce
recipe, perfect to serve over grilled meats and vegetables. It was the "recipe
of the month" in the July 2014 RV Goddess Newsletter.
The August newsletter will be emailed soon, so if you are not yet a subscriber,
sign-up here. The RV Goddess Newsletter
is free and filled with links of interest to RVers and RV cooks - and I always
include a new recipe. There is an "unsubscribe" option at the bottom of each
newsletter, and it won't hurt my feelings (too much) if you decide you no longer
want the RV Goddess clogging-up your in-basket. We do not share, sell,
trade, etc., your email address. Ever. I only email you once a month, within the
first few days of the month.
So, here is the recipe for Chimichurri:
Chimichurri is a sauce originating in Argentina - best
described as a "South American pesto", and is perfect to serve over grilled
meats (flank steak! chicken! fish!). I really enjoy this sauce served over
roasted vegetables (cauliflower!) as well. Usually made by hand, the ingredients can
also be whirled a few seconds in a food processor.
1/3 cup finely chopped Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
1/3 cup finely chopped cilantro leaves
2 cloves garlic, minced
1½ teaspoon dried chile flakes
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar
zest and juice from 1/2 a lemon
1/4 cup best quality extra virgin olive oil
Mix all ingredients in a small bowl. Let flavors meld for an hour or so
before serving. Makes 3/4 cup salsa.
Until my next update, I remain, your whirrled correspondent.
