Quick Chimichurri Sauce

February 18, 2011

in 5 Ingredients, Dips & Spreads, Recipes


Chimichurri is a delicious herb sauce that’s a staple in Argentinian cuisine.  It is FABULOUS on steak!  It would also be great on fresh grilled chicken, fish or tofu. A great addition to our Valentine’s Day dinner!


Makes 4 servings

1/2 cup cilantro (if you don’t like cilantro, you could use all parsley)
1/2 cup parsley (I used italian parsley)
1 Tbsp white wine vinegar
2 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

Put everything in a blender (I used a magic bullet) and blend.  Pour over meat.  Leftovers would probably keep for a day or two in the fridge.
