Chimichurri is often served alongside steak but this wonderful oil-based sauce is just the right thing to drizzle over seafood and give buttery scallops a herby and acidic pop. We added cilantro to ours to give it a bright twist.

Salt (to taste)

1/3 cup of olive oil

1/4 cup of cilantro

1/4 cup of parsley

1 garlic clove, minced

1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon of salt

1/2 teaspoon of pepper
