Chimichurri Sauce Recipe

delicious herby chimichurri sauce

Delicious, green and herby! I love chimichurri marinated steak, topped with fresh chimichurri sauce when served. This sauce can be used as a marinade for chicken, beef or pork but is also a great fresh topper for grilled or baked beef, oven-roasted or baked potatoes, eggs, salad, pasta salad, anything really that would be yummy with some added seasonings or a sauce. You can even add it to yogurt or a healthy mayo to make a dip or spread for a hot or cold sandwich. I enjoy it with the jalapenos but also without. Enjoy!

This chimichurri sauce recipe is from Bon Apetit.
