This sauce hails from Argentina, a country that's known for tasty grilled meats. Pair this with grilled beef, pork, chicken and even fish. It's also a great dipping sauce for grilled vegetables and whole-wheat bread.

Layered Mexican Dip with Baked Lime Chips

My dip has all the flavor of the original, but it's much easier on the waistline. I prefer to eat this "dip" with a fork or raw vegetables.

Gazpacho is one of my favorite summer meals, and it's no coincidence that it's also one of the easiest to make. It's simply a chilled, usually blended vegetable soup of Spanish origin.
