  7. Blend well into a nice oily dressing. Season with the cumin and a little pinch of pepper and salt.
  8. Blend the green sauce again. Add extra olive oil if necessary. You should end up with a thick but still quite runny sauce, something like an oily basil pesto. Check the seasoning of the chimichurri sauce and add extra lime juice, pepper, salt or garlic paste to taste if necessary.
