Ingredients

1/2 cup chopped parsley (flat-leaf parsley)

4 cloves garlic (chopped)

1 shallot (chopped) - optional

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 small red chili (seeded and diced, or 2 tsp red pepper flakes)

3 tablespoon lemon juice (optional red wine vinegar)

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

2/3 cup good-quality extra-virgin olive oil

Directions

Add the chopped parsley, garlic, shallot, oregano, red chili (or crushed red pepper), red wine vinegar, salt, and pepper to the bowl of a food processor. Process until finely minced (take care not to turn it into a thick paste from over-processing).

Transfer the mixture to a small bowl and pour the extra-virgin olive oil over the mixture. Gently mix to combine. Allow the Chimichurri to stand for 15 minutes, time permitting.

Serve over your favorite grilled meats and vegetables or use as a marinade! Enjoy!
