Homemade Chimichurri

homemade chimichurri recipe

Chimichurri is a condiment that comes from Argentinian cuisine, and boy am I glad it spread to the rest of the world. While it’s generally used when grilling meats, it’s definitely delicious when used in a variety of ways, even as a dip for fries or as a “pesto” spread on hot buttered bread (not that hot buttered bread is quite Chirpy-approved, but ya know).

While it’s also not one of the prettiest of things to grace your kitchen, it sure is one of the tastiest.

Homemade Chimichurri is a quick 2 minute throw-together recipe that you can easily make in big batches (that last pretty well in the fridge too). Then you’ve got some handy whenever you need it, and trust me – you’ll learn to need it pretty often. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s just that good. You’ll find ways to incorporate it really quick.

Cody and I have been on a “homemade condiment” kick lately and want to eventually make all of these things ourselves.
