How to make Chimichurri Sauce, a delicious spicy parsley sauce

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Parsley is one of those ingredients I have a fondness for. Because of that, you will find many different recipes calling for parsley. Of course, you will also find many different recipes calling for prunes, but hey the old fashioned foods are often the most nutritious. This recipe is for Chimichurri Sauce, full of parsley and delicious flavor! 

Chimichurri sauce is vibrant and more than a sauce for grilled meats, although it shines in that role. It is also a condiment that knows only the boundaries of your own taste buds.

It is delicious over grilled meats, but it also is a colorful marinade before the grilling takes place.

For other uses besides grilling meats, you can stir some into sour cream for a delicious creamy sauce for fish, vegetables and to decorate a taco or two. It would make a zesty salad dressing, simply stir some into yogurt or mix it half and half with your favorite vinaigrette.

And for now, let's make Chimichurri Sauce.

Chimichurri Sauce, use with grilled meats, perfection!
Chimichurri Sauce
adapted from tasting spoons
make about 1 1/4 cups

3 cloves garlic
1/2 jalapeno pepper - use a spoon to remove the ribs and seeds, not your hands.....
1 T chopped yellow onion or 1 green onion sliced
2 T red wine vinegar
1 bunch flat-leaf parsley- remove and discard the bottom half of the stems
1 3/4 t dried oregano
1 lime, juiced
1/2 t salt
1/2 c olive oil

Combine the garlic, jalapeno, and onion in a food processor, pulse about 6 times, scraping the sides of the processor bowl once. Add remaining ingredients through salt and process until the mixture is chopped. Add oil and continue processing until mixture is beginning to become smooth, but still has some texture.
