Kale Chimichurri

Test Kitchen-Approved

Author Notes:

My twist on the classic Argentinian sauce. I served it over simply grilled whitefish and sautéed greens for dinner. The next morning, I spooned it on my eggs for breakfast.

In This Recipe


  1. Pulse all ingredients in a food processor, then drizzle in the olive oil while continuing to run the food processor.
  2. Taste and adjust seasonings. (Tip: this is bold in flavor on its own, so I suggest tasting it with a bit of whatever you're going to be serving it with before adjusting).
  3. Spoon on top of fish, meat, or veggies

This sauce is excellent! Was superb spooned over grilled zucchini -- truly kicked it up a few notches. Thanks for such an easy and flavorful recipe; the simple ones are often the most creative!
