What are typical Chimichurri uses

As I mentioned, this sauce is super versatile. You can use it as a marinade or a dipping sauce for both vegetables and potatoes. Non vegans/vegetarians can also use it for meat (where it traditionally comes form) and fish.

I can also think of using it as a spread on bread. A nice fit would be my Hummus Homemade Bread or the Artisan Bread (one bowl, Dutch oven).
