Chimichurri sauce is a condiment from Argentina and is widely used in South American cuisine. It’s a green sauce typically served with grilled meats, such as steak, sausages, and poultry, but it can also be used as a marinade or dipping sauce for various dishes. I’ve often used it on pasta as a sauce and mixed with yogurt as a dip.

Chimichurri sauce is known for its vibrant green color and its fresh, herby, and tangy flavor profile. The main ingredients in chimichurri sauce usually include:

  1. Fresh Herbs: The base of chimichurri sauce is usually made from finely chopped fresh herbs, with parsley being the primary herb. Some variations may also include other herbs like oregano or mint.
  2. Garlic: Garlic is a key component in the sauce.
  3. Vinegar: Vinegar, often red wine vinegar, provides the tanginess that balances the flavors of the herbs and garlic.
  4. Oil: Olive oil is commonly used to create a smooth, rich sauce.
  5. Chili Peppers or Red Pepper Flakes: These provide a hint of heat and depth to the sauce. You can always adapt the amount of chili used to your preference.
  6. Salt and Pepper: These are used to season the sauce to taste.
