From Argentina and Uruguay – no, not Brazil – comes this perky, vivacious salsa packed with parsley and garlic, but also containing oregano, chilli, red wine vinegar and not a little olive oil. It’s great to serve atop a picanha steak, which you can read all about here.
1 cup parsley, very finely chopped
4 fat cloves garlic, finely minced
3 Tbs fresh oregano leaves, picked from their stems and finely chopped (or use 2 tsp dried oregano)
2 Tbs red wine vinegar
Half a cup extra virgin olive oil
Coarse salt, a generous amount, to taste
Pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a bowl or jug and stir. Do not blend. DM
