I've never had chimichurri. The closest I've gotten to it is watching Tony Bourdain talk about it on Travel Channel. This tasted like salad dressing, which shouldn't have surprised me, since it's a butt-load of olive oil (what a waste of a cup of oil), red wine vinegar, processed with parsley, oregano, garlic, and lemon juice. Is chimichurri supposed to taste like a vinaigrette? If it is, then I guess this was a successful one, and now I know I don't like it. If it's not supposed to taste like salad dressing, this failed utterly.
|I curse thee, chimichurri.|
To make matters worse, I had to eat mine cold, because I was pushing up on my wee laddy's bedtime, and he pitched a fit just as we sat down to eat.
Conclusion: Have to say, I hated this.
