Chimichurri Sauce: one of the BEST sauces EVER.
And, if you’re one of those people who don’t like cilantro, move along. You can go hang out with Julia Child. No joke, she thought cilantro tasted like soap. Turns out a lot of folks do- it’s genetic.
Chimichurri is an Argentinian sauce traditionally served over grilled meats. It can also be used as a marinade for said meats. Or you can be like me & put it on everything. 😊
The recipe is simple too. I mean, “chimichurri” can be translated as “a mixture of several things in no particular order.” Now that’s my kind of recipe. Not to mention, it’s pretty dang healthy: Whole30 compliant and Paleo.
So just gather up those several things. Specifically cilantro, flat leaf parsley, lime juice, red pepper flakes, garlic, red onion, red wine vinegar, avocado oil, and salt.
Toss it all into your food processor or blender and process until smooth.
Drizzle in more oil if it’s more of a paste than a sauce.
And there you have it. So simple and so flavorful.
Did I mention gorgeous? Chimichurri might be my new favorite color.
Serve over some grilled meats, smashed potatoes, or a spoon. 🥄
