    Used different ingredients. This is a fantastic marinade. I changed this recipe, as I did not have parsley or lemon on hand. I substituted coriander for the parsley and lime juice for the lemon. FANTASTIC. I know this gives a whole different flavour than the original, but try it. It's pure heaven! We marinated the steak, then barbecued it, using the leftover marinade as a mop. YUM!  -  08 Oct 2008


    I love the fresh taste of chimichurri. I made this recipe for my wife and her parents and they loved it. My mother in law now buys a bottled chimichurri called Chimi from the internet. Great sauce!  -  03 Mar 2010


    This sauce was excellent! I am a vegetarian and ate it as a salad dressing at a barbecue and poured over bbq tofu. I plan to make this soon!  -  08 Oct 2008
