Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 8 servings
- 1 batch of Italian parsley
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes (optional for extra spice)
- 1 jalapeno (optional for extra spice)
- 4 scallions (just the green part)
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 2 garlic cloves
Prepare all ingredients for the chimichurri sauce. Only use the green part of the scallions. Cut off the hard stems of the parsley.

Blend everything together until the sauce becomes smooth in texture.
Keep it refrigerated until you're ready to serve.
