If you like cilantro you are going to love this sauce. If you hate cilantro, well, you’re gonna hate this sauce. But, read the notes below for substitutions.
I love this sauce because it is very easy to make and tastes great on just about any type of meat. The sauce does not need to be cooked and you do not need any special tools. Just a sharp knife and cutting board.
The garlic is roasted before making the sauce but the process is super easy. Check out my tutorial How To Roast Garlic for detailed instructions.
What should you serve this cilantro chimichurri sauce with?
What if you hate cilantro?
No problemo. Traditional chimichurri sauce is made with fresh parsley. Feel free to use parsley instead of cilantro for a fresh and flavorful sauce.
What if you don’t have time to roast the garlic?
You can use raw garlic BUT you will need to use a lot less! Roasted garlic is very mellow compared to raw garlic. If using raw garlic, grate 5-10 cloves into sauce depending on your taste preference.
