Ah, carrot tops. They're large and leafy and edible, so it's sort of tragic to throw them away. But it's also daunting to find something to make with them that's actually delicious. Enter this carrot top chimichurri. The condiment, which hails from Argentina and Uruguay, is traditionally made with parsley. But carrot tops work in this twist because they're leafy and grassy like parsley. The sauce keeps for three days in the refrigerator, and trust us, you’ll be drizzling it over chicken and steak galore.



  1. Pulse the garlic, shallot and jalapeno in a food processor until finely chopped. Add the olive oil, carrot tops, cilantro, vinegar and oregano and pulse until the herbs are roughly chopped. Season with salt and pepper. The sauce will keep in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days; serve at room temperature.
