Chimichurri Sauce Recipe

Authentic Chimichurri

My delicious Chimichurri recipe combines fresh herbs and spices with extra virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar for the best accompaniment to grilled meat and fish.

Chimichurri sauce originates in Argentina and Uruguay, where I first tried it. Use it as a dip or top your meat with it for deliciously bold flavor!


– 2 cups flat leaf parsley – ¼ cup oregano leaves – 10 garlic cloves – 2 tbsp minced onion – 2 tsp crushed red pepper – 1 tsp sea salt – ¼ tsp black pepper – 1 cup  extra virgin olive oil – 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
