Chimichurri Sauce

Afew years ago, Tom was asked to speak to a group in Florida. While dining out during that trip, I was served chimichurri sauce alongside a steak. The sauce was a fabulous accompaniment to the steak, so I knew I had to find a recipe to make the sauce at home.

Meeting with success, I recently made chimichurri sauce while entertaining company. Though intended for the steak, several in the party raved over its accompaniment to the chicken.

A few days later, I heated the remaining sauce, added some cream and stirred it into pasta, making a delicious and flavorful side dish.

Enjoy this flavor packed recipe while you add a few more greens to your diet.
