Green Sauce: Chimichurri



Yield 8-10 servings

This sauce is bright, healthy and really easy to make using simple flavor components.  Combine and store in the fridge for a fresh condiment to help bring any dish to the next level.  Serve over steak, chicken or fish, add to soups or add oil for a delicious vinaigrette!



1 bunch cilantro, rinsed thoroughly

1 bunch parsley

1 pinch red pepper flakes

½ lemon, peeled and seeds removed

1 tsp lemon peel

2 cloves garlic, whole

¼ yellow onion

½ cup water

½-1 tsp salt, to taste


In the bowl of a food processor or blender, combine all ingredients and pulse to break up large pieces.

Once well-combined, continue blending until smooth.

Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.

Remove all but ⅓ cup of sauce to a container with a lid and store until ready to use.
