Chimichurri Sauce

Chimichurri Sauce

This tangy, vibrant chimichurri will illuminate dishes such as grilled or roasted meats, roasted vegetables, starchy dishes, and even seafood. There are no rules about when or where you can use this versatile condiment to bring a splash of flavor and pleasing contrast to your culinary creations.

Ingredients

2 cups packed fresh Italian parsley leaves
4 medium garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
1/4 cup packed fresh oregano leaves (or 4 teaspoons dried oregano)
1/4 cup pinot noir red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 cup Certified UP Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Place the ingredients in to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until the ingredients are chopped and the sauce is combined. Can be made ahead and stored under refrigeration for up to one week in a tightly sealed container. Freezes well for future use.

Use over grilled or braised lamb, pork, beef, poultry, in potato salad, over grilled or roasted vegetables, as a marinade for meats, over seafood, as a bread dip, and over hummus.

Makes about 1 1/2 cups of condiment.
