Argentine Chimichurri Sauce | Recipeish | Gustus Vitae
Chimichurri is one of our favorite sauces and marinades, and we've almost always got a mason jar of it front and center in the fridge. It's built for steak, but we love it just as much as a salad dressing or marinade for chicken or shrimp.

- 3/4ths Cup red wine vinegar
- 1 Tbs Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
- 2 Tbs Garlic Basil Sea Salt
- 1 Medium bunch parsley
- 1 Medium bunch cilantro
- 1 Lemon
- 2 Tbs Oregano
- 5 Cloves garlic

- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together olive oil, vinegar, the juice of one lemon, Crushed Red Pepper Flakes, Garlic Basil Sea Salt, and dried Oregano.

- Peel and finely mince garlic and shallot, again adding to the bowl.
- Remove stems and seeds from peppers, mince, and add to bowl, before thoroughly washing your hands.
