Why you'll  enjoy this 

Make sure to use very fresh parsley!

Pulse all of the ingredients in a food processor to blend.

Put the chimichurri in a bowl or jar and put in the fridge to allow it to cool down.

If you want smaller portions of frozen chimichurri, you can freeze it in ice cube trays and then transfer the cubes to a plastic bag.

Start by pouring a little olive oil, and keep adding more as you go. You may find that you like less olive oil than what the recipe calls for.

Some chimichurri recipes have fresh cilantro. Feel free to add 1 cup of fresh cilantro if it sounds good to you.
