Chimichurri Recipe (Uruguay & Argentina)

Chimichurri, it is a popular sauce and marinade in Latin America used with grilled meats especially chicken and beef.
Also chimichurri would pair well with seafood, pasta, and salads.


1/2 cup of olive oil
2 tbs. of water
4 tbs. of fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. of red wine vinegar
2 lg clove of garlic, minced
1 small red chili finely chopped
1/4 cup onions, minced
1/2 cup of fresh parsley, chopped finely
1 tsp. fresh basil, chopped finely
1 tsp. fresh oregano, chopped finely
1/2 tsp. of fresh thyme, chopped finely
1/8 tsp. of salt
1/8 tsp. of pepper


For easier and faster results, use a food processor and pulsate everything until it is all blended.

If making this by hand,  mix all ingredients together in a bowl.

Let the sauce stand at room temperature for 20 minutes before serving.

It can be prepared earlier than needed, and refrigerated for 24 hours.

I love it and I will add a couple of tablespoons over my chicken or fish to serve as I don’t eat red meat.

Preparation Time: 10-20 minutes
