first fruits {chimichurri recipe}

tonight jim made chimichurri with the first parsley and cilantro from our garden. chimichurri is a zesty herb sauce that is delicious on grilled chicken, steak, or veggies, as well as with bread and cheese, chips, eggs, and pretty much anything you can imagine.  nom nom.

here is the recipe, approximately:

Chimichurri Sauce
3/4 c packed parsley
3/4 c packed cilantro
1/2 c olive oil
1/2 c white wine vinegar
4 chopped garlic cloves
juice of 1/2 lemon, squeezed
3/4 tsp crushed dried red pepper
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt

combine everything in the blender.  it's easy, fresh, and tastes just like summer:)
