What is chimichurri sauce?

Chimichurri is a no-cook sauce, condiment and ingredient that is green or red, but most commonly green. It originated in Argentina, but has similar cousins in many other countries.

The main ingredients are parsley, garlic, oregano, red wine vinegar, coarse salt and olive oil to bind. For a red chimichurri, red roasted bell pepper is used.

Other common ingredients include cilantro, red pepper flakes, oregano, shallot, onion and jalapeno.
