Zesty Chimichurri Sauce

Healthy Fact of the Day

Chimichurri sauce is not only delicious but also packed with health benefits. Parsley and cilantro are rich in antioxidants and vitamins, while garlic and onion have anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties. The olive oil in the sauce provides heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, making chimichurri a nutritious addition to your meals.



  • 1 cup fresh parsley leaves, tightly packed
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, tightly packed
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped

  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper



  1. In a food processor or blender, combine the parsley, cilantro, garlic, red onion, and red chili pepper (if using). Pulse until the herbs and vegetables are finely chopped.

  3. Let the chimichurri sauce sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to meld together. Alternatively, you can refrigerate the sauce for up to 24 hours to intensify the flavors.

  4. Before serving, give the chimichurri sauce a quick stir and taste it, adjusting the seasoning if needed.

  5. Serve the zesty chimichurri sauce alongside grilled meats, roasted vegetables, or as a flavorful condiment for sandwiches and wraps.
