put this on everything 🙂

It’s been a WHILE since I’ve tried any new recipes worthy of sharing with the world!  I have been in a winter slump in a lot of ways, and I am so thankful that this Kansas winter has lifted!  A good friend of mine–who happens to be a chef–recently hosted a small get together, and she served this chimichurri sauce with grilled chicken.  I just about fell out of my chair.  It was so zesty and fragrant, and bright.  It made me rediscover my passion to go home and make good food.  Thanks for sharing, Valentine ;)!!

Chimichurri complements any protein beautifully.  I served mine with pulled pork today, it was a great change-up from barbecue sauce.  It would taste awesome with a juicy grilled steak.  All 3 of my children loved this.  It delivers a true summer flair to the plate.

1/2 c olive oil
1/8 c white (or red) wine vinegar
juice of 1 lime
1 large shallot
1 garlic clove
2 seeded jalapenos
1 1/2 c fresh cilantro
1 1/2 c fresh italian parsley
1/4 c shelled pistachios
3/4 tsp kosher salt

Place ingredients in a blender or food processor in the order listed.  Blend until it reaches desired consistency.   Refrigerate leftovers.  

Enjoy!
