Chimichurri a delicious green sauce from Argentina with a bright fresh flavor. It’s simple to make with only 7 ingredients.


  • 2 large cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup firmly packed fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 cup firmly packed fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil


  1. Mix chopped garlic, vinegar and salt together in a small bowl. Let sit 15 minutes to mellow the garlic.
  2. Add parsley, cilantro, oregano, and the garlic/vinegar mixture to a food processor pulse until chopped up.
  3. With processor running, slowly add oil in a thin, steady stream until mixture is combined. Don’t over process.
  4. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes to release all of the flavors into the oil before using. Ideally, let it sit for more than 2 hours, if time allows.
  5. Chimichurri can be prepared earlier in the day and refrigerated.
