This Chimichurri Radish Sauce Is:

  • Bright
  • Fresh
  • Bold
  • Spicy
  • Garlicky
  • Packed with flavor
  • A vegan, gluten free, low sodium sauce!

We are always looking for low sodium sauces to enjoy on our food.  Just becuase something doesn’t have salt, it doesn’t mean it is flavorless… this chimichurri proves it!  The radish, fresh herbs, garlic, spices, and vinegar all bring a ton of flavor to the table without the saltshaker. This no salt sauce is beyond flavorful!

What’s In This Radish Chimichurri?

  • Radishes: with the tops, if you can find them. I used fresh radishes from our garden (they are super easy to grow, BTW!) and roughly chopped the roots and greens for this sauce.
  • Garlic: for a bold flavor!
  • Parsley: A whole bunch, stems included. This is a great way to re-use parsley stems instead of throwing them in the compost.
  • Olive Oil: for a rich, velvety texture
  • Red Wine Vinegar: a staple ingredient in classic chimichurri! Gives this sauce a load of flavor and a nice acidity
  • Oregano: for a nice earthiness
  • Red Pepper Flakes, if you’d like your sauce a little spicier than with just the radish

If you’re looking for recipes for radishes from the garden… look no further! We grew a ton of radishes this year from seed, and they all did surprisingly well.  So well, we actually planted a few rounds.  This turnred out to be one of the besst recipes for fresh radishes that we made!

How Do I Make This Chimichurri Sauce?

  1. Roughly chop the radish root and greens, garlic cloves, and parsley. Add to a high speed blender with the rest of the ingredients: Olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic cloves, oregano, red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper.
  2. Blend on high speed for 1 minute until a thick sauce forms. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time if the sauce is too thick or if the blender seizes up.
  3. When blended, pour into a ramekin or small bowl and garnish with extra red pepper flakes.  Enjoy!
