Chef Mike's Zero Waste Chimichurri Sauce

Chef Mike's Zero Waste Chimichurri Sauce

This sauce... the one that is perfect for using up miscellaneous herbs and aromatics like the 1/4 red onion would otherwise get thrown away marries perfectly with grilled veggies like carrot, zucchini and many more while also makes for a delicious marinade or sauce to add pizazz to grilled pastured chicken or steak.
