Full-flavored Chimichurri Sauce & Marinade

Chimichurri Sauce is one of the most versatile sauces and marinades I've ever used and I think you'll be amazed to find how many recipes you can use it in.

This particular chimichurri recipe is adapted from the traditional Argentinian version and is typically used with beef, vegetables and fish - but it's flavor blend lets you extend it's use well beyond that.

You can even use chimichurri as an appetizer on baguettes with cheese.

Chimichurri is pretty quick and easy to make and stores well in a sealed jar in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

It's featured in our California Barbecue Chicken as the main seasoning and is versatile enough to showcase this Gourmet burger too.
