What is Chimichurri?
Chimichurri is a lip smacking sauce from South America. It is made with fresh parsley, garlic, spices, and olive oil. This chimichurri sauce can either be a green or a red one called chimichurri verde or chimichurri rojo, respectively. The two key ingredients that make this sauce are fresh parsley and hot chilly. This South American delicacy could in fact have its origins in the Spanish Chirriburri sauce. And we all know why this happened? European colonialism of course.
