No-Cook Sauce Recipes: Chimichurri Sauce

<p>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. <em>Makes 3/4 cup.</em>
<p>• 1 cup Italian parsley, loosely packed<br />
• 3 tablespoons chopped Greek oregano leaves<br />
• 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes<br />
• 3 garlic cloves, pressed or minced<br />
• 1?4 cup red wine vinegar<br />
• 1?2 cup extra-virgin olive oil<br />
