Chimichurri Sauce

What is Chimichurri? It’s just an uncooked sauce that is used both in cooking and as a condiment for grilled meat. It requires only a handful of simple ingredients but, when it comes together, it really packs a punch. This can be made in advance, and benefits from sitting in the refrigerator for awhile. Two tips on this: be sure to remove the stems from the herbs and use a good, high-quality olive oil.

Chimichurri Sauce Ingredients:

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (provides fat)
  • Red wine vinegar (provides acid)
  • Garlic (will give that pungent flavor)
  • Red pepper flakes (will give a spicy kick)
  • Fresh Flat Leaf Italian Parsley (will give freshness)
  • Fresh Cilantro (will give freshness)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper (rounds out all the flavors)

This sauce is loaded with great flavor, and takes almost no effort to whip up. All you need is a food processor, a couple of minutes to prep the ingredients, and you’re just minutes away from a delicious sauce that can do so much! 😉
