A while ago, an elderly neighbor entered the elevator that I was in. She covered her mouth and apologized for her garlicky breath. She then went on to tell me how she had just eaten a chicken dish that she regularly makes. I love the wisdom of my elders so I took a mental note of how she prepared her chimichurri sauce recipe – with olive oil, garlic, fresh parsley and cilantro.
My husband Reggie really likes cilantro, so I decided to make the marinade for my family. Since I had already cooked chicken the night before, I tested it out on pork…the other white meat. Everyone in my home – including my “selective eater” Sean – enjoyed the flavored pork.
When I tasted it, I was reminded of a green chimichurri sauce (minus the vinegar). This great-tasting dish is perfect for the summer. In any event, it’s definitely worth a little garlic breath!
