Latin Americans love this traditional sauce, and each country seems to have its own variation. Chimichurri is an indispensable component to an Argentinean asado (barbecue), where bowls of this vinaigrette-like sauce are enjoyed with grilled beef and sausage. Chimichurri is also used as a marinade and tastes great with other proteins, such as chicken and fish. Makes 3/4 cup.

• 1 cup Italian parsley, loosely packed
• 3 tablespoons chopped Greek oregano leaves
• 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
• 3 garlic cloves, pressed or minced
• 1⁄4 cup red wine vinegar
• 1⁄2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
• Salt to taste

1. Rinse, dry and chop parsley sprigs; add to a small mixing bowl with oregano, red pepper flakes, garlic and vinegar; whisk together.

2. Add olive oil in a steady stream, continuing to whisk until oil is completely blended; salt and serve at room temperature.
