Chimichurri

½ Cup Water
½ Tsp Salt
2 tbsp red or white wine vinegar
1 cup chopped parsley or cilantro
2 garlic cloves, minced (can do more garlic if you like)
Pinch Red pepper flakes (can do more depending on your taste)
2 tbsp olive oil
Black pepper to taste
Oregano to taste
Basil to taste

Combine the water and ½ tsp of salt in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir so the salt dissolves. Mix in vinegar, parsley, garlic, pepper flakes, oregano, basil, black pepper. Slowly drizzle in 2 tbsp of the olive oil, stirring to incorporate. Since the water is typically still warm, I usually put it in the fridge for about 20 minutes so it cools and everything “soaks in.” Everything here is to taste, so if you want to add more of something, or less of something, go ahead. I usually test it with a piece of bread to see if I got the taste right. Be careful with the vinegar though. I usually add 1 tbsp, then apply more if I need it
