Chimichurri Sauce

10 mins

1 cup

What you are creating

If you love herb based marinades or condiments, you will love my Chimichurri sauce! This is not your typical Chimichurri sauce as it contains cilantro, parsley and oregano along with champagne vinegar for the acid rather than lime or lemon juice.

It's the perfect balance of herbiness, garliciness, tang and spice. I make it up either the night before or the morning of grill day.

The longer you let it sit in the fridge the more developed the taste will be!


  1. Combine oil, garlic, shallot, vinegar, salt, cumin, red pepper flakes, black pepper, cilantro, oregano, and parsley in a blender.

  2. Pulse blender 2 to 3 times; scrape down the sides using a rubber spatula.

  3. Repeat pulsing and scraping process until a thick sauce forms.

  4. Let sit in the fridge for a few hours so the flavors develop. Even better the next day.

  • 1/2 cup olive oil

  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 1 shallot diced thinly
