    Dee-lish! Added shallots and having it with a pork loin roast. Had lots of parsley in the garden so I made 2 batches - one hand chopped (looks "fresher, greener" and the other in the food processor (flavor seems more intense, color more muted). Will update after it sits for a couple days.

    Just finished making this and tried a little. Very tasty and I’ll bet it will just get better as it sits and melds. I did add a little extra fresh oregano and I used 2 big bunches of parsley as well as 6 cloves of garlic.

    It was good, the only thing was after I mixed the wet with the dry i ran it through the processor again to make it a little finer, but otherwise delicious

    The flavor is light and fresh. There’s a slight spicy kick to it, because of the chili flakes. I like spicy food, so I would recommend more chili flakes. Be careful with how long you pulse it, because I pulsed it too long in the blender, so it came out like a paste. Still delicious, but the consistency was different.

    I made it more for a marinade and threw it in the vita mix, it was delicious. If you want it leafier do not do that. The flavors were perfect though.

    I agree that the salt was a tad heavy, especially if paired with a well seasoned steak. But all in all, the flavors were exceptional. It was fresh, herby, and acidic enough to offset the fattiness in your choice of meat.

    I replaced the white for red vinegar. Used it on chicken breast to bbq them, came out excellent! I'll do it again

    This was so delicious. My first ever attempt at chimichurri and everyone raved! I did cut the salt back a bit to 3/4tsp but I wish I had reduced it even more. I had to add in more herbs and oil to offset the saltiness. Overall, I will make this again.
