5 Minute Chimichurri Sauce...Super Easy

5 Minute Chimichurri Sauce…Super Easy

  • Author: Mila Furman
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 8 people 1x


My 5 minute chimichurri sauce has a secret ingredient that sets it apart from the rest! It comes together in just a few minutes with a couple of pulses in the food processor. This sauce packs loads of garlicky flavor and is a perfect sauce, marinade and dip for just about anything!


  • 1 bunch of cilantro (washed and ends removed)
  • 1 bunch of parsley (washed and ends removed)
  • 7 cloves of garlic (less if you want it a bit less garlicky)
  • 1 large shallot (halved)
  • 2 scallions (cleaned)
  • 2 tbsp red chili flakes (more if you like it spicy)
  • 2 tbsp dry rosemary
  • juice and zest of one lemon
  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Add cilantro, parsley, garlic, shallots, chili flakes, scallions, rosemary, lemon zest and juice, salt and pepper into a food processor or blender.
  2. Pulse until the mix is just under finely minced. This is about 15 pulses.
  3. Stop the processor, add the olive oil. Pulse 2 times.
  4. Remove from the food processor and place into a bowl. Add in the vinegar and mix in with a spoon. Taste and season.


1. This is easier to process with a food processor than a blender. However, I have tried it with a blender and it was not as easy to get it all out of the blender.
