Chimichurri Sauce

Chimichurri is a pesto-like, thick Argentinian herb sauce that is typically served with roasted meats and fish. The bright flavors of the sauce are quite seductive, and you may find yourself dabbing a bit on everything on your plate. Chimichurri sauce goes well with a Grilled Turkey Breast or a steak.

1/4 teaspoon cayenne or crushed hot red pepper
2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
