Chimichurri Sauce

This savory chimichurri sauce has a bright, fresh flavor and is an excellent accompaniment to grilled steak, chicken, fish and more. It also makes a great condiment for sandwiches (itry it as a mayonnaise), or stirred into a pasta or grain salad.

What you'll need

  • 1 large bunch Italian flat-leaf parsley
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
  • 1/2 cup really good-tasting extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (or half as much table salt)
  • A large pinch of dried red-pepper flakes (optional)

How to make it

  1. Cut the large stems off the bunch of parsley, then submerge the leaves in a sinkful of cold water, then spin it dry in a salad spinner.

  2. Combine the parsley with the remaining ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and whir until pureed. If it resists pureeing (maybe you had an extra-large bunch of parsley?), add more oil and vinegar, proportionately -- enough to make a sauce-like consistency, and taste for salt. Yields 1 1/2 cups.
