And, it’s one of our favorite sauces to pair with roast beef. Here are a few tips on how to roast beef if you’re considering making this.

This sauce is blended so that it’s smooth. But, if you want to, you can easily add a few small chunks of avocado right before you serve it to give it a bit of texture. 

You can either spoon it on top of the meat you’re serving it with. Or, you can serve it on the side in a small bowl. It’s a great way to add flavor to almost any recipe.

What’s the difference between pesto and chimichurri?

Pest combines basil and olive oil. This recipe traditionally calls for parsley, oil, and most importantly vinegar for a distinctive tang that is not present in pesto.

We’ve combined parsley and cilantro. But, you can use only parsley to keep it more traditional if you like.
