Chimichurri Recipe of Awesomeness® - Rising to the challenge

I'm pleased to tell you that I've been included to take part in a series of Cooking Challenges by Holland House® and Mizkan® along with several other Latina bloggers.

The first challenge was to use one of many Holland House products to create A Latino 4th of July on the Grill. To be honest, Eric is the Grill-meister around here. I am just Hero Support. What to do?

Eric: “I'll grill the steak and you should make that awesome Cuban chimichurri sauce of yours.”

Me: “Are you referring to my Chimichurri Dipping Sauce of Awesomeness®?”

So I began with the Holland House White Wine Vinegar.....

White wine vinegar

and the Awesomeness. ;-)


So, for your 4th of July Grilling pleasure - Cuban style....

Chimichurri Dipping Sauce Recipe of Awesomeness®

  • 1 bunch of cilantro leaves (or Italian Parsley)
  • 8 cloves of garlic (peeled)
  • 1/4 cup Holland House White Wine Vinegar
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1/2 cup white onion
  • 1/4 cup roasted red pepper strips

  • Salt & pepper to taste
  1. Put all ingredients EXCEPT the olive oil in blender or food processor and pulse to a thick mixture. (Do not over-process!)

  3. Add salt and pepper liberally.
  4. Serve over fresh grilled steak or use as a dipping sauce for bread.

WARNING: Chimichurri Dipping Sauce of Awesomeness® is highly addicting. Don't say I didn't warn you. =D
