Chimichurri – A condiment to complement a healthy lifestyle

chimichurriAfter my recent post about the extensive health benefits of garlic, I think it is clear that adding more to your diet could help your health in many ways. The problem is “How?”

One simple way is to make a little somethin’ called chimichurri. Chimichurri is an Argentinian condiment that has been around for at least a hundred years and there are as many variations of the sauce as there are people making it. No one really knows when people started using it or how it got it’s name but it has grown into a cultural norm as Vegemite is to Australians, HP sauce is to Brits or Ketchup is to Americans.

Chimichurri is delicious! I have a jar in my refrigerator at all times to add into soups, eggs, sauteed vegetables, over rice, in vinaigrettes, use as a dip or for a marinade. Another great benefit is that it is raw so you will be getting the full benefit from the garlic contained therein.

It is one of the most healthy and versatile condiments you will ever keep in your house and it is healthy! Because you will be making it, you know exactly what is in it. No corn syrup, preservatives, food colorings, or additives that can be harmful and are all too often found in packages sauces.

Give it a try. I think you may be surprised at how addictive it really is!


  • 1 large bunch each of cilantro and parsley, washed with stems removed
  • 5 garlic cloves, peeled
  • sea salt, to taste
  • 1 – 1 ½ c. high quality olive oil


  1. Put herbs, garlic and half of the oil in a high speed blender
  2. Blend until smooth, adding more oil as needed to get the sauce nice and smooth
  3. When smooth, taste, add a good pinch of salt and blend. Taste, and adjust salt to your palate.
  4. Place in a sealed jar in your refrigerator for up to 3 weeks (but it won’t last that long!)
