This chimichurri recipe is an adaptation of a recipe by Karina of Cafe Delights. It is remarkedly similar to a recipe for kabob basting oil that I once learned while working for a Lebanese family at a restaurant in Philadelphia. I use the term "recipe" lightly - someone in the kitchen showed me how she put olive oil, fresh oregano, garlic, and salt into a jar and let it sit. Back then, I had no idea that their basting oil was akin to Argentinian Chimichurri, which is incredibly versatile. I use it all the time now.
