What is a Chimichurri sauce? 

The original ingredients of the Argentinian authentic Chimichurri sauce have parsley, garlic, oil, and red vinegar. This doesn’t mean that you can not use other herbs if that is what you like.

Can I substitute Parsley in this Recipe? 

You can use cilantro or even basil in place of parsley. Cilantro or Basil can be added in addition to parsley as well.

What to serve Chimichurri Sauce with? 

The sauce goes well with any grilled chicken, steak or fish. I also serve it alongside any baked salmon and even roasted potatoes. It’s very difficult to actually find something that wouldn’t benefit from this sauce. It’s super delicious!

In the summer, I use the leftovers of this parsley garlic sauce to spread on a piece of toast, before topping it with sliced tomatoes and mozzarella. You’ve got to try that one – it’s amazing!

How to serve this Sauce?

I place it into a small bowl with a spoon next to it. When camping, I make sure to blend the ingredients for the sauce a little extra, to make the sauce very smooth, then pour it into a squeeze bottle. That way, everyone can squeeze it right over their grilled meats, just like ketchup or mayo.

Now go ahead and enjoy!

    My husband likes sauce with really any meat we make. Usually we have A1 or BBQ sauce on hand. I decided to make this today to go along with elk steak. His words? This is better than A1 sauce. Chimichurri sauce for the win! Will definitely be making it again.
