Whole30 Chimichurri Sauce

In preperation of Taco Tuesday!! I wanted to share this very tasty recipe I tried from my Whole30 cookbook. If you don't have the cookbook, Costco had them on sale. Worth every penny. And for a clean eating Whole30 - Paleo momma like myself, it's packed full of delish recipes!

I first tasted this recipe on the Coach Retreat I was on last week, and knew I had to share it with the famjam. TBH I'm not even sure if I had even tried chimichurri sauce before last week?? Isn't that a shame. lol. All good, at 33 I have tried it and fell in love with the unique flavour.

I should also include this disclaimer. I'm not a huge fan of cilantro, and can be found picking it out of my food at restaurants. I know, so rude. But hey a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. But really, I love the way it blends with the sauce. I don't find it as harsh as plain in a salad. So, if you're not a huge fan of cilantro either, no worries. Still give it a try.

WHOLE30 Chimichurri

¼ red wine vinegar
¼ cup lime juice
1 tbsp minced garlic
½ shallot minced
1 ½ cups healthy fat (avocado or extra virgin olive oil)
¼ cup fresh cilantro
¼ cup fresh parsley
½ tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper

  • Combine vinegar, lime, garlic and shallot in a food processor and mix on low (I used my ninja mixer and pulsed)
  • Add in olive oil and mix, it should start to emulsify
  • Add all remaining ingredients and mix until uniform texture

Should last for 2-3 days in fridge. Bring to room temp before serving, you may have to give it a little whisk to blend. I poured my extra into plastic containers and froze for for use!



  1. Not a fan of cilantro? Gasp! That's okay, I'll take your share off your plate for you ;)

    I just tried chimichurri recently and ended up using in place of mayo in my wraps and sandwiches - YUM!

  2. Great Chimichurri Sauce, this looks so good! Thanks so much for sharing your post with us at Full Plate Thursday and come back soon!
