Well my Argentinian friends over here are all on holiday, so I can't consult them, but I'd have thought you could right there about the vinegar. I tried a chimichurri a few weeks back at a BBQ - and it definitely had vinegar rather than lime juice. Just that the oregano was overdone for me - the more parsley the better imho!

Spot on about the lemons, too. Those yellow monsters can be found here,under the name " limón francés" (French Lemon) but are used rarely. The "limón criollo" or local lime is about the size of a golfball, or smaller and is much sharper in flavour than the yellow lemon. It is used extensively instead of vinegar from Peru up to Mexico. If you've never eaten a ceviche made with limón criollo, you've missed something!!

I made one recently with wine vinegar that was delicious.
The "local lime" sounds a bit like a key lime which could indeed be used instead of vinegar for the "sour'.

This is very interesting because I had been thinking I would do a search for this sauce today....so very pleased to see I was saved the search. CliveB could you get hold of a local recipe for us to have a look at?

Also, my local Argentinian serves these with cheese puffs that are wonderful. Are they traditional at all? And does anyone have a recipe for cheese puffs? They are kind of like savory profiteroles and the cheese tastes more like emmantal than anything else I can put my finger on. They are cooked so that they are only just done on the inside.

I have made this with vinegar instead of the lemon as well and yes it works extremely well. Personally I like the lemon though, traditional or not, so that is why I posted it this way, but feel free to change it up however you like. That is the great thing about cooking.

I'm ashamed to say I've never had this before. Honestly, I don't recall every seeing it offered while I'm out dining. I'm going to cut an paste your recipe GB and give it a try in the future when I have most of the ingredients because it sounds absolutely right up my alley.....I am going to try it with the cilantro. THANKS!

Edit..........just realized I do have all the ingredients as I bought some cilantro last night for fresh homemade salsa. I'm going to try this on grilled chicken breasts tomorrow.

No reason to be ashamed. I am sure there are millions of recipes that all of us have not tried yet that we would love.

If you love garlic then you will LOVE chimichurri. This stuff really is amazing!!! And there are as many variations as in pesto so make sure to try this one and try others and find one that really speaks to you.

I forgot all about that recipe....thanks for the reminder. I really need to go through my recipes I've cut and pasted from here because some I haven't yet tried and I know I'd love because the ingredients are all things I like. THanks for the reminder. I bet that recipe would be good to marinate chicken in too.

I have never tried it with chicken, but I bet you are right. I will have to give that a shot!
