Easy Cilantro Chimichurri Recipe

This cilantro chimichurri recipe is a quick herby sauce to make in a blender! With fresh parsley, cilantro, garlic, oregano, olive oil & vinegar, this sauce packs serious flavor into anything that needs it!

Chimichurri is a classic Argentinian sauce that goes great on anything grilled: meats, vegetables, or potatoes. This sauce has a deliciously bold flavor, and is such a great addition to your next grilling night or BBQ.

I love fresh cilantro and parsley, I could eat bunches and bunches of them  (as I do often in my Easy Quinoa Tabbouli recipe!).  This parsley and cilantro chimichurri sauce is our new go-to condiment, especially for grilling in the summer months. This simple sauce is a classic recipe from South America and has so much flavor from garlic cloves, herbs, and spices.

And I love how vibrant the sauce is – in color and in flavor! The sharpness from the vinegar is wonderful with the silky texture from the olive oil. The flavor of the fresh ingredients like  parsley and cilantro can wake up any dull food that needs a bit of extra flavor. This versatile sauce is makes a great dip, salad dressing, and is traditionally served on skirt steak or other grilled meats.

How To Make Cilantro Chimichurri Sauce

1. Add all ingredients to a blender and mix on high for 1 minute, until the sauce is smooth and creamy. If blender seizes up, add 1 tablespoon of water at a time until the blender begins mixing.

2. Spoon directly onto potatoes, roasted vegetables, or hot-off-the-grill meats.

3. Transfer any leftover chimichurri sauce to an airtight container (I like to use a mason jar), refrigerate, and use within 2 days. Or freeze leftover sauce in an ice cube tray.

The Best Blender for Sauces

I’ve owned a lot of blenders, but my Vitamix is definitely the best one I’ve owned. This high-speed blender will blend even the toughest of ingredients into pulp.  I prefer using my blender for recipes like this, as it’s much easier to clean the Vitamix. This is definitely one kitchen appliance we use on a daily basis!
