  • 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.
