Chimichurri is a South American condiment made from finely chopped parsley, minced garlic, olive oil, oregano, and red wine vinegar. It can be used as a sauce or a marinade.
Chimichurri sauce has a fresh, herbal taste with a garlicky and tangy flavor. It is not spicy, but it can be made spicy by adding a chili pepper.
No, dried herbs are not recommended to make chimichurri sauce. The sauce relies on the volume of fresh herbs as well as the textures and bright flavors. Dried herbs simply would not work.
Russet potatoes are best for grilling due to their substantial size, thick skin, and exceptional starchiness. This leads to crisp outsides and fluffy insides.
There’s no need to soak these potatoes before grilling. Simply toss them in avocado oil and get grilling!
