I decided to throw a bunch of herbs, lime zest and juice and olive oil in a food processor and to see what would happen. The result was a cross between a pesto and a chimichurri sauce.
- 1 cup parsley leaves/stems
- 1 cup cilantro leaves/stems
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- zest and juice of 1 lime
- salt and pepper to taste
1.) Add all the ingredients in a food processor and run until a sauce is formed
2.) Use as a dip, sauce, marinade, topping, etc and Enjoy!
I used this sauce as a marinade for some pork tenderloins that we grilled as well as a sauce for the pork. It was also an amazing spread on a turkey sandwich.
