Chimichurri sauce is a classic Argentinian dressing, it will transform your everyday recipes into exotic and delicious meals.
It's as good dolloped onto roast potatoes or roast meat as it is on Argentinian choripan (grilled sausage sandwich). You can also use it to marinate veggies, tofu or to season a roast dinner. We encourage you to discover new delicious uses for your 'Salsa Brava' Chimichurri!
We were tempted to make a hot version, as we have lots of customers that love hot sauces. We gave it a go, and here it is. It's smoky flavour comes from smoked chipotle, it is a sauce that you can't miss!

Before I realised that it is important to stir the contents of the jar, I tasted a little chimichurri sauce on a teaspoon to gauge just how hot it might be - and it was very spicy indeed! Then I had a second taste and realised it was not unbearably hot after all. I had just happened upon a small piece of chipotle chili first up. It should have been obvious that the product did need to be stirred since the liquid tends to settle on the surface, but I was too quick to go for that first impression.
I found that this sauce is amazingly versatile. I tried it first on some home-made beef patties, served on pumpkin and sunflower seed muffins with a side of salad; a healthy alternative to a fast food burger, but a bit on the heavy side and lacking in flavour. The chimichurri sauce was just what it needed, providing a full flavour with a satisfying sting in the tail. Later in the evening, we were snacking on some mixed nuts - mostly larger whole nuts like Brazil nuts and pecans, so I tried adding some sauce to a small dish so we could try it as a dip. It was so tasty if a little messy and was a perfect food to enjoy while watching a horror movie.
Another success was as an ingredient with a salad dressing. I had already tried it spooned directly on to a green salad, and found it a good alternative to a mayonnaise or vinaigrette, but this time we were having a hot fish salad which needs a spicier and more liquid dressing. I mixed equal quantities of plain Greek yoghurt, natural hummus, grated mild cheese, and chimichurri sauce, and poured it over the salad. The result was a fusion of flavours which raised a potentially boring meal to an interesting combination that had everyone asking for seconds. We served it with fresh crusty bread which was just as well as we would otherwise have run out of salad altogether.
It is rewarding to find a sauce that is not only tasty but is also a healthy option. It is a natural product with no preservatives, and is low in carbs which is a bonus. The label features several suggestions for serving, some of which I have yet to try. There is also a reminder to keep the jar refrigerated once it is opened, although my jar is almost empty already so that will not be a problem! And yes - there is also a reminder to shake before use. Serves me right for not reading the entire label BEFORE I opened it. I will know next time.
