Chimichurri ~

The confiterías (cafés) of Buenos Aires play an important role in social, business and cultural life. In confiterías people meet friends and business associates, workers take coffee breaks, retired people play dominoes, and theatregoers have coffee after a show. Certain confiterías have been associated with particular artistic, literary, political and student groups.

Last night I took a respite from grilled tacos… it has been 80 days, after all! (we really haven’t eaten grilled tacos for 80 days… more like 65!)

I didn’t eat the meat with the chimichurri, Tony and Toren really tucked into it though ~ I did, however, dip the lovely crisp asparagus into the beautiful, pungent and slightly citrus chimichurri ~ YUM!

Val’s chimichurri

  • 1 bunch parsley
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 T coconut vinegar
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 – 4 T olive oil

Place all ingredients in blender ~ puree until smooth.  A perfect accompaniment to ANY grilled meat, white fish, AND asparagus! Enjoy ~ v
