This versatile green sauce comes from Argentina. The thick, smooth version made in the blender,
as described here, is great to drizzle over cooked foods (eggplant, tofu, Portobello mushrooms)
just before serving, or as a condiment on the table. Thinned with a little water or olive oil, you can
use it as a marinade or for basting foods while grilling.
