Cilantro-Arugula Chimichurri


Chimichurri is a popular herb-based condiment with Argentinian roots. This version was inspired by last week’s CSA  – most of the ingredients came right from the box and into the food processor. Serve as a dipping sauce or marinade for any type of grilled protein or vegetables. As one of my friends put it, it’s “eyes rolling back in my head good.”
