So fresh and fragrant, this versatile sauce can be used as a condiment, a pesto or even in lieu of chimichurri with your favorite grilled meats. It's ready in a jiff; it just needs a quick whir in a food processor or blender. If you're not a fan of cilantro, substitute another fresh green herb of your liking. Tarragon will pair best with veggies, eggs, fish or white meats as will dill. Oregano is heartier and can complement red meats or garlicky beans. Chervil or chives would keep the sauce bright and light in flavor. The possibilities are really limited only by your imagination and taste preferences.
