Homemade Chimichurri Sauce is a wonderful Argentinian sauce to use on any meat or fish for a fresh and healthy addition that bursts with flavor.
When we were in Florida in April visiting my Mother-in-law, she treated us to a wonderful dinner at an Argentine restaurant that she loved. It was a first for us and I, too, fell in love! It’s a close second to my new love of Thai foods like Bang Bang Shrimp and Pasta or this Thai Chicken Zucchini Noodles in Spicy Peanut Sauce.
My mother in law, however, ordered steak gaucho, a traditional argentine dish. It came with this lovely green sauce and, since we share in our family, I tried it and fell more in love.
Anything with cilantro and garlic is going to be fantastic in my eyes. Chimichurri Sauce is one of those sauces that you can put on any meat or fish and want to lick your plate. Use it on burgers too. Delicious!
My favorite right now is to light up my basic grilled chicken with it. Serve with cilantro lime rice and roasted veggies for a completely wonderful and healthy meal.
