Lightened Up Chimichurri

This is more of a pinch of all the herbs... more of the ones you really love... but I tried to assign some real measurements.  But feel free to mix it up using what you love.

  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley
  • 2 tbs fresh oregano
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro if you hate cilantro, take it out or trade amounts with parsley!
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2-3 chives 1-2 tbs chopped
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed arugula
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes


  • Pulse all ingredients in a small food processor until just slightly chunky and blended.
  • Put it on everything!  Especially flank steak, grilled chicken, shrimp, and fish....


  • If you're not watching your fat, add up to as much as 2/3 cup olive oil.
  • Fresh lemon juice can be added in place of the vinegar, or just in addition!
