  • Place the parsley, cilantro, oregano, garlic, and shallot in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. You don’t want the mixture completely smooth; the texture should be slightly chunky. If you don’t have a food processor, you can finely chop all of the ingredients with a sharp knife.
  • Transfer the mixture to a small bowl. Add the olive oil, vinegar, lime juice, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes. Stir until well combined. Taste and adjust seasonings, if necessary.
  • Serve with grilled steak, chicken, fish, vegetables, tacos, and more!


You can use all parsley if you want a traditional chimichurri sauce. 
Store in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. Let come to room temperature and stir before serving.
