Chimichurri with a Twist

This chimichurri is one of the most delicious things I have ever had. I cannot stop eating it. I have therefore made it for dinner every night this week and my husband is obsessed with it as well. It is super easy to make, all you have to do is place the ingredients in a blender and voila, the most delicious dip sauce is done.

We have had it with broiled salmon and fried plantains for the past nights. That combination was incredibly delicious. I wonder if I could ever get tired of this dish.:) I literally think of this sauce all day long. And the best part about it is, that it is so good for you. I was about to name this sauce the detox chimichurri because it features some of the healthiest ingredients.

chimichurri

Healthy chimichurri ingredients:

  • parsley
  • cilantro
  • shallot
  • garlic
  • avocado
  • olive oil
  • lime

So in the future, if you are battling a cold and try to get all these goodies in, just make this dip. As you can see some of those ingredients are not your regular chimichurri items, but that’s what makes this sauce so special. As a result, it is oh so flavorful, creamy, fresh…I don’t really have words to describe how amazing it is. Give it a try and let me know what you think. 🙂

Pair this sauce with your favorite protein, like salmon and steak for example. I would say this recipe is for 2 people but could be for 4 as well if you just use a little bit of it. As I mentioned before, my husband and I are obsessed with it, and even though it looks like quite a lot of sauce for the two of us, it is gone within minutes.

I can’t wait for you to try it!

Happy blending!
