The Best, Foolproof Chimichurri Recipe

Here’s a recipe for a salsa verde/green sauce that is the end all be all of green sauces. It’s herby, piquant, fresh, a little bit briny, and not too spicy. It will also last in your fridge for a long time – like 3 weeks – before it goes bad. Make this green sauce of the gods once and enjoy it 10x over.

In the tradition of chimichurri (typically made with cilantro in my experience), this salsa verde is the perfect complement to a variety of proteins. If you’re a low carb type, this salsa verde also has 0 carbs.

  • Eggs – soo yummy on top of eggs
  • Chicken — it helps a grilled chicken breast be less depressing

To make this homemade green sauce/salsa verde, you will need:
