1 cup firmly packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
3 medium garlic cloves
3 tablespoons of packed fresh oregano leaves
1/3 cup Olive Us Ultra Premium Certified Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tablespoons Olive Us Champagne Vinegar or Olive Us Barrel Aged Red Wine Vinegar
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Place all the ingredients into the bowl of a food processor. Process until finely chopped but stop short of making a fine paste.
Scrape the chimichurri into a bowl and adjust the seasonings as desired. This can be served immediately but gets even better when flavours meld for a few hours in the fridge. However, if chilled, return to room temperature before serving.
Keeps well for up to three days covered and refrigerated. Also freezes well for future use.
Makes approximately 3/4 cup of sauce.
