Easy Chimichurri Sauce Recipe



There's a new Mexican restaurant near my house that I am slightly obsessed with.  Thankfully so is my regular lunch date gal pal.  I literally haven't ordered a bad meal from there, or even a mediocre one, and the margaritas are legit.  (Saint Anejo, for the locals who want to check it out).  The last time we visited I told the waiter I was in the mood for red meat and veggies, so he came back with the most wonderful skirt steak and grilled vegetables that was dressed with the most delicious chimichurri sauce I've ever had.  Naturally, I spend the next few weeks trying to recreate the chimichurri recipe.  And, folks.  Ohhhhhh, I think you're going to love me for this one!

This sauce uses all fresh, bright and delicious ingredients, but can be frozen so you'll have these amazing flavors on hand any time you want.  If you don't want to freeze, no worries, the oil and lime will keep it preserved in the fridge for several weeks if not longer.

I'm pretty sure this sauce could make even the gloomiest days look bright.  We may be getting into those dark winter evenings that come too early, but make a great steak with your cast iron and throw this over top to forget all your seasonal worries.  And throw in a margarita while you're at it.
