Cilatnro Chimichurri Sauce in a mason jar surrounded by ingredients (onion, red pepper flakes and basil)

Easy Cilantro Chimichurri Sauce


Chimichurri, a fresh and vibrant Argentinian sauce, is a quick and easy way to add some flavor and color into your meal rotation.


½ head baby butter lettuce

1 ½  cups fresh parsley

1 cup fresh cilantro

½ cup fresh mint

¼ cup olive oil

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Juice of ½ lemon (1-2 Tbsp, adjust to taste)

1 large clove of garlic, peeled and roughly chopped

1 medium shallot, roughly chopped

½ tsp coarse salt

¼ tsp freshly-cracked pepper

Pinch of red pepper flakes  to garnish *optional


Place all ingredients in a high powered blender or food processor and blend or pulse until well combined. You can blend until you get a full puree or stop earlier at a chunkier consistency.


The cilantro can be easily omitted or you can substitute for:

  • More mint and parsley

  • Replace with another herb like basil, celery leaves or dill, or any leafy green – think spinach, butter lettuce or arugula
