Ingredients

  • 1 cup Italian parsley chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 3 T oregano fresh
  • 1 T mint fresh
  • 3 serrano peppers
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Instructions

  • Add parsley, garlic, oregano, mint, and serranos to the food processor.
  • Pulse ingredients until chunky.
  • Empty the contents of the food processor into a bowl. Mix in red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, and vinegar.
  • Slowly drizzle in the olive oil and stir to combine.
  • The chimichurri is ready to enjoy, or pour the chimichurri sauce into a jar, then seal and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Notes

  • Similar to pesto, stir the sauce in pasta for a new twist.
  • Use instead of pizza sauce to make home-made chicken pizza. It's to die for!
  • Make sure to bring the sauce to room temperature before serving.
