When I decided to make meatballs for the first time a few months ago, I of course spent the afternoon looking for a recipe that inspired me. I came across the version by Jo Cismaru of Jo Cooks, who dresses hers with chimichurri and feta.
Now, I am slightly obsessed with chimichurri. It’s great on just about everything, and it’s so simple to make. Just throw everything into a blender or food processor, and blend away. So when I saw her recipe, I knew I had to make my own version. I use ground turkey in mine, but they're amazing with pork too. And really, how can anything topped with chimichurri be wrong?
P.S. I can't eat garlic anymore, so I don't usually add any to my chimichurri. PLEASE add it, at least a clove, more if you really like garlic. I'll just have to enjoy it vicariously. —Lemon & Biscuits
