Fresh herbaceous Chimichurri Sauce! Perfect for beef, salmon, or chicken. A variety of green herbs, Serrano peppers, olive oil, and red wine vinegar are blended together with fantastic results. Keto Diet friendly! —Jessie @Straight to the Hips, Baby

What You'll Need
  • 2 large shallots, peeled & sliced thinly
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves, washed & dried
  • 1 cup fresh Italian parsley leaves, washed & dried
  • 1/4 cup fresh oregano leaves (about 6 sprigs) washed & dried
  • 6 cloves of fresh garlic, peeled & smashed
  • 2 Fresno chili peppers, washed & seeded
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste
  1. After preparing your green herbs, peppers, garlic, and shallot, add to the bowl of a large food processor.
  2. Combine the red wine vinegar with the vegetables and pulse a few times to just break down the ingredients.
  3. Next, add the olive oil and blitz the sauce until thoroughly chopped. You’ll know when you’re at the right consistency when the mixture looks like a finely chopped salsa.
  4. Taste, and season with salt & pepper.
  5. Transfer the sauce to a large glass bowl and allow it to sit at room temperature for 30 mins before serving. This resting time allows the flavors to meld.
  6. Refrigerate any remaining sauce and use with in 3-5 days.

I think your recipe is great, it is a refreshing way to make new dishes at this time, also our family can enjoy and suck their fingers with them. I think it is a great contribution what is provided on this page, in the same way I would like to give my grain of sand by providing a solution or an advantage with regard to recipes that use bread, I would like to share a product that I have been using quite a lot with respect to the kitchen. This is a book, I got it at https://bit.ly/358QIrE that helped me eliminate the bread from my recipes, I leave a link where you can get it with a very affordable price.
