Ready to make your own Chimichurri?
Here's what you'll need:
2 cloves of Garlic
1/2 a Red Onion (or Shallot)
1 cup Parsley (minced)
1 cup Cilantro (minced)
1 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Red Pepper Flakes (or minced Jalapeno)
Pinch of Salt
Pinch of Black Pepper
1/2 to 1 cup Olive Oil
1/2 to 1 cup Red Wine Vinegar
Let's get started:
First we'll add the dry ingredients– mince the garlic and red onion and add to a bowl.
Mince the parsley and cilantro combination, and add to the mixture.
Add your seasonings to taste.
Next add the liquid ingredients, olive oil and red wine vinegar. Then mix to a spreadable consistency.
Pro tip: let your chimichurri sit and settle for a bit to soak up all of the flavors!
That’ll do pig... until next time!
