This cilantro chimichurri sauce recipe is all you need to elevate all kinds of dishes: Drizzle over gazpacho, or toss with cooked shrimp and pasta for a zingy Argentine-inspired scampi. Adding whole garlic cloves to the food processor first seasons the work bowl so the sauce picks up more garlic flavor.
