Chimichurri is a staple condiment in Argentine cuisine, usually made from a mixture of fresh parsley, garlic, oregano, hot peppers, vinegar, and olive oil. It’s bright green and has a chunky, grassy texture that adds flavor to any dish. This involves pureeing fresh berries with chimichurri—instead of garlic and herbs—to create a crunchy texture and a pungent flavor perfectly balanced by the heat of the Calabrian pepper. Shallots, which are lightly marinated in lemon juice and olive oil, add a sweet and pungent bite to the mix. Red raspberry chimichurri is an ode to summer, and pairs wonderfully with grilled meats like pork chops, chicken thighs, or steak.
