"From gaucho campfires to society weddings, you can always find chimichurri in Argentina," writes Francis Mallmann in "Seven Fires: Grilling the Argentine Way." Make the chimichurri a day in advance, he writes, so the flavors have time to blend. Chimchurri may be refrigerated for two to three weeks.
1 cup water
1/2 tablespoon salt
1 head garlic, separated into cloves, minced
1 cup packed fresh flat-leaf parsley, minced
1 cup fresh oregano leaves, minced
2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Heat the water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add the salt, stir until dissolved. Remove from heat; cool. Combine garlic, parsley, oregano and red pepper flakes in a medium bowl. Whisk in the red wine vinegar; whisk in the olive oil. Whisk in the salted water. Transfer to a jar with a tight-fitting lid, refrigerate.
