Spicy Argentine-inspired sauce that is an ideal pairing for grilled meats and vegetables.
(Notes: This recipe is a great way to use fresh herbs in the summer and early fall. The sauce may be used to marinate meat or vegetables prior to grilling or served with finished meats and vegetables after grilling, broiling or searing. Store any left-overs in a glass container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Stir to recombine ingredients before serving)
