I’ve been a sauce-lover my whole life. One of my favorite things about visiting France is that I’m surrounded by fellow sauce enthusiasts.

The French love sauce the way Americans love sneaking sugar into sauce (ketchup, barbecue sauce, and salad dressings all come to mind).

It seems impossible to have a meal without being served some sort of sauce. At the very least, there’s always mustard or mayonnaise!

Now, I love a good fatty cream-sauce as much as the next person, but sometimes I want something a bit more fresh.

I first had chimichurri sauce back in 2012. Essentially, it’s like a nut-free, cheese-free pesto but instead of basil it’s parsley and cilantro.

So, like I said, nothing like pesto.
