Chimichurri is a sauce that originated in Argentina and Uruguay, and is typically served with grilled meats. It is made from finely chopped fresh herbs (such as parsley and oregano), garlic, oil, vinegar, and sometimes chili pepper flakes.
Chimichurri is a versatile sauce that can be used in many different ways, such as a marinade for meats, a topping for grilled vegetables, or a dressing for salads. The fresh herbs give it a bright, herby flavor, while the garlic and chili pepper flakes add a bit of heat.
To make chimichurri, simply combine finely chopped parsley, oregano, garlic, and chili pepper flakes in a bowl. Whisk in olive oil and red wine vinegar until the mixture is emulsified. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Chimichurri can be stored in the refrigerator for several days and the flavor will continue to develop over time. It is a popular condiment in many parts of South America, and has gained popularity in other parts of the world as well.
