Easy Chimichurri Sauce

  • Author: Katja from Savory Lotus


Chimichurri sauce is a fresh, green sauce originating in Argentina and Uruguay and typically used on grilled meats. This is my interpretation.



  • 23 cloves fresh garlic
  • 1 packed cup parsley or cilantro (or a combo of both)
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 1/2 cup olive oil (my fav organic brand)
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • black pepper, to taste
  • red pepper flakes (like this)


  1. In a food processor, pulse garlic until finely chopped.  Add parsley (cilantro) and process until finely chopped.
  2. Scrape garlic and herbs into a medium bowl.  Add rest of chimichurri sauce ingredients and whisk until well incorporated.
  3. Store in glass jar in fridge up to 3 days.


Chimichurri sauce is typically made with red wine vinegar, but I prefer the taste of lemon or lime juice.  Feel free to use what you have on hand.
