Chimichurri Sauce

I often say your sauces make the meal. They are the magic blend that takes food to the next level. Chimichurri is a South American sauce used to flavor many types of dishes. It’s one of my favorites, and a cinch to make!

1/4c. cilantro, fresh chopped
1/4c. parsley, fresh chopped
2T. fresh oregano, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 shallot, finely diced
1/4c. red wine vinegar
1/2c. olive oil
2t. red chili pepper flakes
sea salt to taste

Begin by dicing your shallot and mincing your garlic. Set aside and lightly chop your herbs. Add the herbs, shallots and garlic to a wide mouth mason jar. Sprinkle with salt and red pepper flakes. Use an immersion blender and mix well. Alternatively, add ingredients to a food processor and process well. Add the red wine vinegar and olive oil and puree lightly again. Allow to sit for 15-20 minutes before using.
