Quick and Easy Cilantro Chimichurri Sauce

I was inspired to make this cilantro chimichurri-like sauce because Trader Joe's has this "Zough Sauce" that Im obsessed with. And since I am in Canada I have to make do! Wow your friends with this "fancy" sauce-but really it's so easy and simple to make. But beware-it's addicting we put it on everything; eggs, portobello mushrooms, salmon, or use it as a dipping sauce for a charcuterie! Gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, vegan.

Prep time: 2 minutes

Cook time: 2 minutes

Total time: 4 minutes


1 bunch cilantro

1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 tsp red chili flakes

3 garlic cloves

1 jalapeno cut into smaller chunks

1 lime (lemon works too)

pinch salt


Blend all ingredients in a blender. I used a Nutribullet. Adjust flavors accordingly.
