No tales to tell on this one. Chimichurri is traditionally used on grilled meats & the idea of that combo makes me want to start eating steak again. But – I will not. I will just find other uses for this EASY & delicious sauce. It is so pretty, too. Later – I will post a dish that incorporates using this stuff.
4 or more garlic cloves
2 cups fresh Italian parsley
1 cup fresh cilantro
5 hot peppers (I used 4 serrano & 1 jalapeno) – seeded (or more if you love heat)
5 scallions (ends cut off)
1 tsp dry oregano (or 3 fresh sprigs)
1 tsp lime zest
1 tsp lime juice (with more to be added at the end to your taste)
S&P to taste
3/4 cup (or more – if you like this sauce thinner) olive oil
Puree in a food processor. Add lime & salt & pepper to taste. Add more hot pepper – to taste – and blend smooth.
