We just got back from spending some time in Southern California where we always like to cook on the grill at my sister’s house in San Diego. And we made this dish…
Delicious Chimichurri Sauce
This is the perfect recipe for Chimichurri Sauce.
A fresh garlic and herb sauce that's perfect for grilled meats.
- 1 tbsp white balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- zest of one lemon
- 3 medium garlic cloves, peeled
- 2 medium shallots
- 1 cup fresh basil, packed
- 1 cup fresh cilantro, packed
- 1/2 cup mint leaves, packed
- 1/2 cup fresh parsley, packed
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- a pinch of dried crushed red pepper
In a food processor, combine all the ingredients until it has just a bit of texture. Transfer the sauce to a bowl and pour the olive oil over the mixture. Let stand for at least 20 minutes.
Here is my dog Chief with his brother Judge along with two neighbors that came over for a little visit. A Boston Terrier party!
We served the chimichurri sauce over grilled sliced flank steak and grilled vegetables garnished with fresh basil and mint leaves.
Now we are back home and I was happy to see our view (no summer fog for a change in SF) and my plants from Trader Joe’s are in good shape!
