Chimichurri Sauce

Did you ever heard about this Chimichurri sauce? This is a very famous Argentinean  sauce / condiment for steak. Its a green sauce made out of flat leaf parsley used for grilled meat mostly in Argentina. Or they use for marinade also. Its basically their pesto , because it has parsley , garlic, red or white vinegar, olive oil and oregano, that's it. You can finely chopped it or pulse it in the grinder or make a fine paste, its your choice. But since we are vegetarian, wanted to use it in my mexican dish. So I use it for my fajitas, top it on my vegetables and cheese on flat taco bed. Even you can dip your tortilla chips in it too, use it for chicken, pasta dishes,thin in out for salad dressing, fish too. Possibilities are endless and as easy as one two three.

Ingredients : 

1 cup flat leaf parsley only leaves , washed
2 big cloves of garlic
2 tsp. dried oregano (if you can find fresh then use 2 tbsp. because fresh don't have that much flavor as dried one has)
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp. red or white wine vinegar
salt and black pepper , red chili flakes as per taste


Finely chopped parsley, fresh oregano and garlic or pulse it in the food processor. I like nice and smooth so I made fine puree.
Take it out in a bowl.
Add in olive oil, vinegar, salt, black pepper, red chili flakes and mix it.
Serve immediately or refrigerate. Before use, take it out and keep it in room temperature and then use it within two days.
Use it for marinade or as a side dish.
