Quick + Easy Chimichurri Recipe
Authentic chimichurri is made with a mortar and pestle or chopped by hand, but this version is pulsed in a food processor to make it a tad quicker to prepare. It’s flavorful, nutritious and delicious. It can be used as a marinade, dipping sauce, or condiment to drizzle over meat, fish and vegetables. You can even drizzle it on your morning eggs, mix with mayo or avocado for a yummy sandwich spread, toss with pasta salad, toss with roasted potatoes, etc. Only takes a few minutes to make and freezes well in ice cube trays to use another day if you have extra (just might lose its vibrancy a little, if frozen.)

NOTES: You can add a chopped red chili or red chili flakes if you like a little heat. The raw garlic is enough of a bite for me so I leave it out.
