A little Chimichurri sauce can go a long way! This delicious, healthy and flavorful recipe complements best with skirt steak, which we tend to grill a few times each month, but it also delicious as a side sauce with Chicken or Beef Kabobs.  It is also a wonderful addition to any starchy side ( mashed potatoes, steamed sweet or regular potatoes, or even French Fries). This recipe can be prepared and made in less then 10 minutes!

  1. Add all ingredients, hold the olive oil, to a blender or food processor. Pulse a few times until finely chopped.  Pour the olive oil in SLOWLY, while keeping the mixture blending for another 60-90 seconds or until the olive oil is combined. Occasionally stop to scrape down the sides in order to keep a good consistency.
  2. Serve immediately, or refrigerate in a sealed container  for no more then 3-4 days. I used this jar, a Mason Jar.
