Chimichurri, pesto’s Argentinean cousin, adds flavor and nutrition to everything it touches. Here I serve it with grilled steak and roasted potatoes, but chimichurri pairs well with chicken, fish, sausage, vegetables and eggs.

  • 1/2 pounds yukon gold or other waxy potatoes, cut in 1″ cubes, leave skin on
  • 2 T olive oil
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper
