Mint-Basil Chimichurri

Chimichurri is a Central/South American sauce for grilled meats traditionally made from parsley and oregano.  We used large amounts of Mint and basil, add more red chili flakes if you like. I was able to freeze the excess for future meals. Chimichurri loosely translates as “a mixture of several things in no particular order”, this sauce goes great with Lamb, Beef and Pork.


Ingredients:

Mint, 2 cups packed

Basil, 1 cup packed

Olive Oil, 9 tbs

1/2 Lemon, juiced

red chili flakes, 1/2 tsp

salt, tsp

red wine vinegar, 2 +1/2 tsp


 Easy preparation. Combine ingredients and puree.  Should resemble a pesto.
