Celantro Lime Marinade and Dressing

I marinated flank steak in this Chimichuri then grilled it to a perfect medium rare and sliced it thin. I put the steak over a mixed green salad with grilled corn, cherry tomatoes, and goat cheese and used the remaining Chimichuri to dress the salad. Even my super picky husband loved it, I was super happy with how it turned out.


  • 1 bunch of celantro
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 4oz can diced green chillies (with juice)
  • pinch of salt to taste
  • juice from 1 lime
  • zest of half lime
  • enough olive oil to make it smooth in the blender.

Yep you guessed it chuck it all into a blender and blend until it's smooth and creamy. A traditional Chimichuri would omit the chillies double the garlic add a bunch of parsley and white wine to smooth it all out.
