Spicy Chimichurri Sauce

I introduced this spicy herbal treat to you the other day on my Spicy Garlic Pulled Pork Tacos.

Thought you might like to know the recipe…














Similar to Pesto, this contains lots of garlic, herbs, and some oil.

But Chimichurri also contains one of my favorite ingredients, {which makes it loads different than pesto} vinegar. White Wine Vinegar to be exact.

This green condiment is perfect on grilled meats, or any meat for that matter. I have already used it on tacos, in a pork panini {I told you I love leftovers!}, and on some Shrimp Fajitas {double yum!}.
