2 tablespoons olive oil

2 teaspoons dried oregano

1 teaspoon red chili flakes

4 cloves garlic

1 tablespoon aji molido (Argentine ground pepper), or ground sweet pepper

1/2 cup chopped Italian parsley leaves

1 teaspoon red chili flakes

Pinch coarse sea salt

1/4 cup malt vinegar, or white vinegar

1 cup canola/olive oil blend


  1. Heat grill to 400 degrees F.
  2. Drizzle cheese with a touch of olive oil. Place cheese on the grill for 45 seconds. Flip the cheese and grill for another 45 seconds. Transfer cheese to a small round baking dish. Sprinkle with oregano and crushed red pepper. Serve immediately, using small knives to spread the cheese mixture onto bread slices. Drizzle Chimichurri sauce over.
