“Chim chiminey chim chiminey chim chim cheree… nothing makes a meal like chimichurri.” Those aren't the words? Fictional London municipal workers don't sing about Argentinian sauces? Well, they should, because this chimichurri is something to sing about, combining sweet, tart, and hot in the most delightful way.
