To this day, his face lights up as he describes the grilled meats, the street foods, especially empanadas, and that special blend of coffee he found at street corners. And while I’ve tried to replicate some of those dishes, it is the chimichurri sauce that takes him back to the asados (barbecues), one of his fondest memories of the country.

While most definitely Argentine, the chimichurri word origin “is unclear. Numerous linguists hold the name, chimichurri, as derived from Basque’s tximitxurri, pronounced chee-mee-CHOO-ree; stumbling interpreted as ‘a mix of several things in no special order’.

And those “several things” in “no special order” are simply fresh herbs, olive oil, and vinegar. Most like the added zip of chili flakes. My husband included. And these “several things” creates a delicious condiment that will take your chicken, beef, shrimp, seafood… even rice, to the next level.

Make a batch before your next BBQ grilling party or cookout, and the leftovers, if there are any… will keep in the fridge for several days.

Buen provecho!
