Chimichurri Sauce

Chimichurri Sauce

Chimchurri sauce is a staple in South American cuisine and served with most meat dishes. There are many different ways of making it so feel free to take my recipe and tweak it to your own tastes. Add more chilli to fire it up, more or less garlic and more or less olive oil.
