Chimichurri is an Argentinian sauce made by combining parsley, garlic, olive oil, oregano, red wine vinegar, and lemon juice. It is traditionally paired with grilled meat, but its tasty nature makes it a shame not to use it in some other ways. So, if you have some leftover chimichurri and are not in the mood for grilled meat, try some of the following.
Use it as a Dip
Chimichurri works excellently as a dip. You can dip all sorts of finger food in it, but it especially works well with toasted bread.
Use it for Sandwiches
Want to make over-the-top sandwiches? Then use chimichurri as a condiment. It will work great with sandwiches that have grilled chicken in them while also being a flavorful condiment for vegan and vegetarian options.
Use it for Soups and Stews
Chimichurri will give soups and stews more flavor and introduce a herby and refreshing note.
Use it as Salad Dressing
Chimichurri can give your salads a flavor kick and make them taste amazing. Salads with leafy greens, tomatoes, and cucumbers are the perfect candidate for some chimichurri.
Use it for Roasted Veggies
Chimichurri can make even the most bland roasted veggies taste great. Simply drizzle some chimichurri over the roasted vegetables and enjoy the results.
