Cilantro-Arugula Chimichurri


Chimichurri is a popular herb-based condiment with Argentinian roots. This version was inspired by last week’s CSA  – most of the ingredients came right from the box and into the food processor. Serve as a dipping sauce or marinade for any type of grilled protein or vegetables. As one of my friends put it, it’s “eyes rolling back in my head good.”

Cilantro-Arugula Chimichurri

Makes about 2 cups

1 clove garlic

1 bunch arugula (about 2 cups)

1 bunch cilantro

3 green onion (white and green parts)

1 small jalapeno pepper, cut in half

Zest and juice of 2 limes

1/2 cup rice vinegar

3/4 teaspoon kosher salt

3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Place garlic in a food processor and pulse until chopped. Add arugula, cilantro, green onion, jalapeno, lime, salt and vinegar and process again until all ingredients are well combined. Transfer to a bowl and whisk in olive oil. Allow to sit for at least one hour for flavors to marry. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
