    Chimichurri is a South American condiment that brings together several dimensions of flavor: It’s herbaceous, tangy, savory, and a little spicy.

    If you ask three different people exactly how to make chimichurri, you’re bound to get three distinct answers. Chimichurri has many variations! That’s helpful because it’s pretty easy to sub out the parsley for other fresh green herbs – cilantro is common – or the vinegar for some other acid.

    That means this is more of a template you can use to customize the Chimichurri Sauce to your liking. Want it spicier? Add more red pepper flakes, for example.

    Sometimes, you’ll see traditional chimichurri more like a blend of herbs sitting in a bowl of olive oil. However, I make my sauce more like a dressing by blending the oil in at the end.

    1. This sounds really yummy! Making it this week, soon as we do our weekly shop — cheers! -Michelle G 😉

    2. I love this sauce. It has been giving me life for the past 3 days. Makes my lunch a lot better. It’s up there with the tortilla recipe lol. THANKS!

    3. I was wondering if I could make this ahead and then freeze it in an ice cube tray, and remove them as needed?

    4. Hi,
      The first two times I made it, was perfect. This time it’s terribly bitter. What went wrong? I’ve looked online and some say it’s too much garlic, others EVOO is the mistake. Thoughts/recommendations?
      Thanks!

      1. If you used a peppery extra virgin olive oil that’s probably the culprit. I would stick to a lighter tasting olive oil…you can find table blends that are milder…or something like avocado oil.
