This is a wonderful, fresh marinade or sauce for chicken or fish. I just used it this weekend to grill some boneless chicken thighs and they tasted wonderful

This is possibly the best chimichurri I have ever tasted. The flavors are simple and fresh, and it's easy to put together. I didn't even get out the food processor, just tossed the whole thing in the blender and whipped it up in seconds. I think next time I might do lime instead of lemon, just because I love limes and cilantro together, but it's a winner just as written. It made a great accompaniment to grilled steak, too.
