Mint Chimichurri

Mint Chimichurri1

Chimichurri is a piquant sauce or marinade traditionally used on grilled meat, typically containing parsley, garlic, vinegar, olive oil, and flakes of chili pepper. It is traditionally used in South American and Mexican cooking. [source] Now, my recipe has most of those ingredients however when I created this Mint Chimichurri, I just blended everything together and didn’t know what it was called! It was a simple kitchen improv experiment. My Mint Chimichurri can be added to veggies, rice or pastas for an extra flavor boost (see “how to” below)!

  • 2 large garlic cloves
