Whisk up this Argentinian condiment for an easy way to add some oomph to your grilled meat. Guests will sit up and take notice – at least to ask if there’s any more of that “green sauce,” and if so, who’s hogging it. Made from fresh herbs such as parsley and cilantro, it’s a more rustic-looking version of pesto, but with the added zip of fresh lemon. Leftovers can be used on sandwiches or tossed with some quinoa or couscous for an easy, healthy side salad.
