fort lauderdale personal chef event catering

Chimichurri sauce is a simple concoction of fresh herbs and garlic - a cross between a sauce and a condiment. Traditionally, chimichurri is served with grilled meats as part of the Argentinian asado (or barbecue), and it is absolutely delicious with grilled steaks and grilled chorizo sausage.  There are other uses for this distinctive garlicky sauce, however.  It makes a fantastic marinade for chicken, pork, or vegetables.  It can be easily converted into a salad dressing with the addition ofoil and vinegar. It makes a nice dip, and is excellent drizzled over cheese. The possibilities are endless.
