3 – Chimichurri
Chimichurri is a vibrant green sauce from Argentina made from crushed garlic and fresh parsley or cilantro. Then, all of those ingredients are submerged in olive oil. This recipe uses less olive oil and has only 25 calories per serving. It’s my favorite topping for grilled fish and it takes any sandwich to another level. Try a spoonful on cooked veggies.
This bold, flavorful sauce from Argentina is used as a topping for grilled meat, but you can use it in so many ways! Try it as a topping for cooked vegetables, or as a spread on sandwiches.
