Chimichurri – A Healthy Steak Sauce

Chimichurri, a great dipping sauce for almost any meat.

Right now you are probably asking, “What in the world is Chimichurri Sauce?”  About a year ago I asked the exact same question.  I was first introduced to the wonderful garnish over a year ago while visiting a Cuban restaurant.  I fell in love immediately.  This sauce is very easy to make and makes a great accompaniment to steak, lamb, or just about any other grilled meat.

This sauce is just bursting with flavor.  It’s very acidic and loaded with garlic.  The flavors blend really well together after letting it marinate for a while.  The only drawback is that you will be tasting the garlic for hours afterwards, so do not eat this if you have a hot date planned.  However, don’t forget how good garlic is for you!
