Author Layla Pujol


  • 1 ½ cups fresh parsley leaves
  • 6 basil leaves
  • Leaves from 3 oregano sprigs add more if you're an oregano fan
  • 4 garlic cloves whole or crushed
  • 3 tbs vinegar can use white wine vinegar, red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 6 tbs of oil
  • 1-2 tsp chili powder or red chili flakes more or less based on your preference
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Combine all of the ingredients in the blender (or mini food processor), mix until you have a smooth sauce. For a more rustic chimichurri, blend all the ingredients except the oil and then stir it in at the end.
  • Taste and adjust salt/pepper or chili powder as needed. You can also adjust the amount of vinegar based on the acidity level that you prefer.
  • Refrigerate until ready to use (but should be used the same day).
