Cilantro and Garlic chimichuri salsa

Neat way to use up leftover cilantro and very refreshing with fish, chicken and vegetables. It's also very nice over a cheese omelet

Cilantro Chimuchuri Salsa
approx 10 servings of 2T each

20 sprigs Cilantro, Fresh (a pretty big bunch)
4 Garlic Clove
1/4 cup Onion (white - Raw Chopped)
1/2 Jalapeno Pepper
3 tbsp Lime Juice
2 tbsp Vinegar
1/4 tsp Sea Salt - Coarse
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
4 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Pulse cilantro, garlic, jalapeno and onion in a food processor until broken up but not smooth. Add everything else and pulse to blend (don't make a paste unless you want it that way).
Taste and add more salt if needed.
Refrigerate at least an hour before serving.

Per 2T serving: 53 cals; 5.36g fat; 0.98g carbs/0.27g fiber; 0.24g protein

I love cilantro too
You can always cut the flavor by going half parsley and half cilantro.

Dottie, this sounds fantastic - I just bought a beautiful big bunch of fresh cilantro yesterday for a recipe and I KNOW I'll have a bunch left over - AND I'm making a marinated grilled tri-tip tonight, I'm thinking that chimichurri is just the ticket! Thanks!!

Thanks Dottie

The sauce sounds fantastic. Do you think it will keep a week?
Would like to double the recipe if possible

It should, Barbo. The lime and vinegar are acidy enough to keep the garlic from going bad

The last time I fed my son cilantro, he accused me of trying to poison him! I don't mind cilantro, but it is an acquired taste for sure.

I made this last night to have on our grilled tri-tip - I didn't have any limes left so used lemon juice - it was FANTASTIC! Even DH loved it, and he is usually a purist when it comes to his grilled meat - he doesn't like ANYTHING on it.

I put some on a bite of my steak and just said, "OH, yum, this is SO GOOD!" and never said another word about it, just shoveled a bunch onto my portion - pretty soon he got a dab and put on HIS steak, and then HE was shoveling it out too! LOL!

Thanks, Dottie, this will be a staple recipe around here. I can see it on just about ANY kind of meat or fish.

I made a little tweak on this: pulsed the cilantro, garlic, jalapeno and onion to a rough chop then took about half of it out of the processor and added all but the olive oil and added an egg yolk, pureed smooth then blended in the olive oil + 3 more tablespoons to make a mayonnaise, then stirred the remaining chopped herb blend into it.
Made a very tasty mayo like dressing, dip, salsa, whatever lol

MMMMM that sounds good!!

I had some left over from the tri-tip grilling; twice now, I've made marinade with it by adding olive oil and lemon juice to it. The first time I marinated boneless skinless chicken thighs; the other night, I did two boneless 1.5" thick center-cut pork chops. I ovenroasted the chicken thighs because it was too windy and foggy outside to want to grill, but the chops went on the grill.

BOTH were killer good!

Will have to try the mayo - that sounds delightful too.

Char I like the mayo so much I'm trying to figure out how to make a cold soup out if it and still make it taste the same, but manageable on calories lol
