Author Notes

When you crave something super simple with a ton of flavor, this is the way to go. This chimichurri is slightly spicy, herby, lemony, and comes together in 5 minutes. Literally. Put it on any steak, fish, chicken, or even veggies! —Danielle Oron

How is the Harissa involved? Have you tried actually adding harissa to the chimichurri? Is it any good -- or do the flavors get muddled?
