This uncooked herb sauce is our version of South American chimichurri, but with much less oil. This vibrant green sauce is super versatile, perfect for serving on grilled meats and fish, as a marinade, or as a dipping sauce for roasted or raw veggies. Spoon it over everything from halved hard-boiled eggs to grilled steak or salmon to roasted vegetables. The recipe makes about 1 cup of sauce, and it will keep, refrigerated, in an airtight container for up to 7 days, so experiment with ways to use it.
