My husband discovered an extreme love for this sauce while on a hunting trip to Argentina.
I will admit, I love it as much as he does. This chimichurri sauce is a great addition to just about any protein - try it with my Argentine Chicken. Chimichurri is made up mostly of parsley which is a highly nutritious, healing food that doesn't get enough credit. Most people know parsley for its popularity as a garnish, but this herb is high in vitamin K, vitamin C, folic acid & contains anti-inflammatory properties.
This sauce can be made up quickly for a big pop of taste & stores nicely in the refrigerator for several days.
2 cups italian parsley
3/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
6 cloves garlic
1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
place parsley, garlic & seasonings in the bowl of a food processor.
pulse until coarsely chopped.
pour in olive oil & red wine vinegar, then process again until parsley is finely chopped and ingredients are well combined.
