Chimichuri Sauce

Chimichuri Sauce

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and most are dairy free. The first time I had Chimichuri sauce was at the Mediterranean restaurant that used to be at Disneyland’s Grand Californian. So, of course, I wanted to recreate it at home. I like to use this for chicken, pork or beef. It can be used as a steak sauce. I like to use watercress in this recipe. Watercress is a slightly peppery herb. I find mine at the local grocery stores.

Prep Time Approximately 10 minutes

Makes approximately 1 1/2 cups


2 Cups curly leaf parsley

1/4 cup flat leaf parsley

1/4 cup cilantro

1/4 cup watercress

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

zest of half a lemon

2 tablespoons chopped red onion

3 cloves of garlic minced

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

3/4 cup avocado oil

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper


Pulse garlic and onion in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Remove the thick part of the stems from the herbs. Add parsley, cilantro, watercress and pulse until herbs are finely chopped. Transfer to a jar and add avocado oil, lime juice, lime zest, salt, pepper, and vinegars. To get correct texture don’t add oil while in the food processor. Store in fridge last one month.
