Make this refreshing Chimichurri salad dressing today and make your dinner taste better
Chimichurri is such an amazing dressing for over salad or fingerling potatoes or to use as a marinate. It is surprisingly simpel to make too. All in all a perfect staple to add to our essentials.
It is unbelievable how a good dressing can completely change the taste of your food. This dressing is a staple in Argentina and is so refreshing it was mind-blowing the first time I tasted it. Chimichurri uses fresh parsley paired with the sour note from vinegar or lemon juice and then rounds it up with some garlic and chili. In this version I also added some ginger and cumin powder.
Parsley is such a gem, it has many many health benefits. Foremost it is a fantastic purifier and the combination with lemon juice only makes it better. Making a salad dressing like chimichurri isn’t exactly rocket science so try to vary and experiment with the proportions. You can add a handful of different herbs, too, like oregano, cilantro or a hint of mint.
Just add one bunch of fresh parsley, a chopped red onion, some garlic cloves, salt and chili flakes to your blender and add to that vinegar and oil in a 2-to-3 ratio. Blend until smooth and taste to adjust the flavor. For more recipes download our app for iPhone.
