Great with a change or two

The previous reviewer is right; when making chimichurri sauce it's more flavorful to add a combination of cilantro and oregano to the parsley for more zip, in addition to a dash of red pepper flakes for those who can't handle the heat of a jalapeno pepper. Some lime juice is also a great addition for more tang (I would use two small cloves of garlic instead of one). Otherwise, if you've never had grilled romaine lettuce as part of a salad you're in for a treat. First time I ever had this was at a trendy "foodie" restaurant and it was a revelation! Enjoy

For the best Chimichurri, use fresh cilantro, fresh oregano & fresh mint, as well as flat leaf parsley. Parsley alone is too bland. Minced shallot, minced jalapeno, sherry wine vinegar, lime juice, and 5-6 cloves of garlic cloves takes chimichurri over the top!

That wouldn't be chimichurri,

That wouldn't be chimichurri, we do not eat cilantro or jalapenos in Argentina, let alone mint in savory dishes.
