Chimichurri Sauce:

Yield: 1 1/2 cups
  1. In a blender, add olive oil, vinegar, basil, crushed red pepper, garlic and parsley, and blend for approximately 15 seconds. Repeat for another 15 seconds. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.

Cook’s Note

Chimichurri sauce should be well balanced by all flavors. The red wine vinegar may overpower the sauce and can be balanced by adding more basil and oil. Chimichurri sauce can last in a closed container the refrigerator for 7 to 10 days.
