Chimichurri Argentino

This Chimichurri Argentino sauce is one of the easiest and tastiest sauces to put on top of any BBQ or add to your charcuterie board. I prefer to let it sit for at least 24 hours on the counter, but it can be ready to use in just a few hours.
This classic Argentinian sauce adds freshness to chicken, brisket, pork, and any other meat you like, and also some spiciness and garlic flavour.
If you prefer a mild spice version, you can skip the red child pepper and use 1 Banana Pepper instead or just a bit of jalapeño (always remember to remove the seeds).
If you don’t have red wine vinegar, you can use lemon juice.
