Easy Peasy Chimmichurri Sauce

Hello friends! Have you ever made a recipe and thought to yourself why did it take me so long? Well that’s exactly what I said last week when I made this chimmichurri sauce. Wow does it ever add flavour! Now I have seen this recipe many of times in magazines and swear everytime that I am going to make it. With summer right around the corner we will be adding this sauce to the weekly meal planning list.


Chimmichurri sauce is easy peasy to make. I hesitated to post this delicious sauce but the reality is a good sauce can change your whole meal, in a good way.  I love this chimmichurri sauce because its so versatile.  I opted to leave out jalapeños but if you want to take it up a notch go ahead. Not only can you play around with ingredients but this sauce can be added to anything from fish, vegetable skewers to flank steak served over a nice summer salad.
