We've put a unique twist on chimichurri, an Argentine condiment of herbs, garlic, and vinegar. Cherries are the main ingredient in a sauce that's garlic-forward and suffused with lime juice. This mixture of sweet and tart flavors makes for a perfect summertime dinner with a juicy grilled chicken breast and fresh vegetables like zucchini, bell pepper, and red onion.
