Recipe Radar: Basil Chimichurri

I bought a huge thing of basil at the grocery store that I was supposed to plant, but being that it was raining cats and dogs outside, I decided that I was going to use it all up. Rather than making the standard batch of pesto with it, I wanted to try something new. Since I was making steak last night, chimichurri sauce was the first thing that came to mind. I had never heard of chimichurri being made with basil, but I thought let me Google it and sure enough, I found what I was looking for!

I used a little bit less garlic than this recipe from Sarah’s Cucina Bella, but other than that I stuck to it and it was the perfect accent to our steak. A great summer sauce that I definitely recommend putting on your recipe radar!

What other summer sauces do you plan on making this season?
