Often this time of year our produce delivery box will contain bunches of cilantro or parsley or other fragrant, beautiful herbs. Recipes call for a few sprigs or chopped tablespoons, but that leaves a whole lot leftover (to then rot and die in my fridge). There’s only so much cilantro you can throw on a taco. Right? Right.
A few years ago, I made a pretty delightful Avocado Chimichurri Sauce, shared the recipe on the facebooks and walked away, only to make it a handful of times since then. I stumbled across the recipe again, played with it some more and turned it into a thick, tasty and refreshing salad dressing. The recipe uses the whole damn bunch of herbs, so you don’t have to worry about leftovers, unless you’re really good at using them.
Pro tip: Trim the ends of cilantro and parsley when you bring them home from the store. Keep them in a tall glass with a few inches of water in the fridge to keep them fresh and crisp longer!
I like to use 2-3tbls and toss with mixed greens. Because it’s fairly thick, it’s not a great drizzling dressing. If it’s too thick for your preference, add avocado oil 2-3tbls at a time to thin the dressing.
