If you haven’t had Chimichurri Sauce before, you’re going to love the flavors of this recipe!

Originally it’s from Argentina, known as “Argentine Pesto” and very popular in Uruguay (where I discovered it while living there).

In Uruguay and Argentina, Chimichurri is served on the side with most grilled meats (beef, chicken, pork, lamb). It can also be used as a marinade (giving your meat 24 hours to marinate will do wonders for the flavors and tenderness).

You can also mix it with rice or potatoes for extra flavor. Make this recipe once, and you’ll make it over and over because you’ll always want a jar in the fridge.
