Easy Chimichurri Sauce

easy chimichurri sauce (paleo, gluten-free, vegan, aip-friendly) via Food by Mars

Everyone knows I love a good green sauce, especially… pesto. But after venturing out there into Chimichurri sauce land… I now have a new LOVE. Yes, I admit it, I’m cheating on my pesto sauce!! But I’ve made peace with it, because YOLO and it makes everything from protein to veggies absolutely fancy and delicious with minimal ingredients. The tangy, slightly spicy (if you want it to be) and herbaceous tastes of this sauce makes it so versatile! I hope you love it as much as I do. Store this in the fridge for just about 5-6 days or so, if you make a lot and can’t use it all, simply freeze it in batches so you always have reserves. Delicious go-to flavor bombs like this make healthy eating even more fun and complex.

  1. Aaaaamazing sauce – I am a chimichurri addict and this one is the bomb! My family loved it and it gave me a chance to use some of my Italian Parsley that is growing like crazy in my garden.

  2. I love a good chimichurri — it goes with everything and brightens up the flavors on grilled meats and seafood. YUM!

  3. Chimichurri is good on so many things! It adds such a nice bright flavor and is one of my faves. Thanks for sharing your awesome recipe.
