What's this?

Traditionally, chimichurri sauce is slathered over beef, but this zesty chimichurri recipe tastes delicious as a game day dip and on grilled salmon.

Ingredients

  • 2 Whole lemon, halved

  • 2 Medium flat-leaf Italian parsley, washed and chopped with the majority of stems cut off

  • 4 Clove garlic, diced

  • 1/4 Cup red wine vinegar

  • 1/2 Teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/4 Cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 Teaspoon salt

Steps

  • 1

    When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 450°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 2

    Place lemon halves directly on the grill grate and cook for 5 minutes or until grill marks appear.
  • 3

    Take lemons off grill and juice. Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender and purée until smooth, or leave slightly chunky for some texture.
  • 4

    Add additional olive oil to taste for a milder flavor if preferred. Serve on protein or as a dip. Enjoy!
