It’s very easy to make chimichurri sauce. The ingredients are minimal and it comes together effortlessly.
First, it’s ideal to chop the parsley into very fine pieces. I like to use a food processor to finely chop my parsley, but you can also do this by hand.

And that’s it! I told you this recipe was easy to make!
I like to keep this sauce stored in the fridge in an airtight container. It will keep for up to 3 days.
