Fresh Chimichurri Sauce

What does fresh taste like to you?  Chances are, if you try this sauce, you might find yourself saying "Chimichurri!"

Sort of like a South American twist on pesto, Chimichurri uses parsley instead of basil, along with fresh garlic, olive oil and vinegar.

Bright and vibrant, Chimichurri is the perfect antidote to plain grilled chicken, fish, steak or pork.  We used it on grilled Portabellas most recently, and I've even used it as a topping for pasta.

Chimichurri deserves a place on your plate, if nothing else, to be able to say to your dinner guests, "chimichurri."

Side bonus:  parsley is a nutritional powerhouse...because think about it, it's basically a leafy green, like kale or spinach.

Fresh Chimichurri Sauce

1 cup fresh, flat-leaf parsley, packed
2-3 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
3-4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
dash of ground cumin
4-6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Place the parsley, garlic, vinegar, oregano, salt, pepper and cumin in a food processor or blender:



Blend well, and then scrape the sides.  Add the olive oil and process or blend some more:





Continue blending and scraping until the sauce is the desired consistency:



Serve over grilled anything, pasta or a salad!



Makes about 1 cup of sauce.

Life is sweet,
SPC

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
