Originating in Uruguay and Argentina, Chimichurri is made with a mixture of fresh minced parsley, garlic, red wine vinegar, oregano, and olive oil.
Servings: 8 servings
Add the chopped parsley, garlic, shallot, oregano, red chili (or crushed red pepper), red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper to the bowl of a food processor. Process until finely minced (take care not to turn it into a thick paste from over processing).
Transfer the mixture to a clean bowl and pour the olive oil over the mixture. Gently mix to combine. Allow the Chimichurri to stand for 15 minutes, time permitting.
Serve over your favorite grilled meats and vegetables or use as a marinade! Enjoy!
- If you prepare chimichurri ahead of time, keep stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator until ready to use. Best if brought to room temperature before serving.
