Chimichurri Sauce

Chimichurri is an Argentinian sauce traditionally used on grilled meats. However, it is also delicious in your tacos, smothered on your bread or sprinkled over grilled veggies. It is so simple to pull together and can really make an impact to your meal. Use as a sauce for a topping or even as a marinade prior to cooking.

1 cup flat-leaf parsley
2 tbsp fresh oregano
4 garlic cloves
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp white wine vinegar
Salt and black pepper, to taste
Pinch of red pepper flakes

Finely mince the parsley and oregano. Finely chop the garlic. Add to a bowl and whisk in olive oil and vinegar. Mix together with salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes. Now dip in a piece of bread and see if you need to adjust any of your seasonings based on your taste. If it tastes good, cover the bowl with cling wrap and refrigerate until it is time to use.
