Chimichurri is a South American sauce that typically accompanies cooked or grilled meats. It is an uncooked sauce that typically contains parsley, oregano, garlic, vinegar, olive oil, and flakes of chili pepper. This green sauce is known to have herby, sometimes grassy flavor, thanks to all of that fresh parsely and oregano, plus savory qualities from pungent garlic and a touch of fiery heat from the chili flakes. Vinegar adds a bit of tang.
Argentina and Uruguay are the countries most widely associated with Chimichurri sauce, but it is found throughout Latin America and beyond. Chimichurri pairs beautifully with meaty and beefy Impossible™ Burger. This recipe features a fresh take on the zesty Latin sauce, starring parsley, oregano, white wine vinegar and hints of capers and chili flakes. These lettuce cups are topped off with even more crispy-crunchy vegetables plus creamy avocado slices.
This is the recipe for when you have no time but need to throw something beautiful on the table—it comes together in just about 20 minutes flat.
