Tomato Chimichurri Salsa

IMG_1976

Chimichurri is a green sauce based on finely chopped parsley originally from Argentina. Normally it’s used as a condiment with steaks. But I think it adds great flavour and goes well with a lot of things. Like fresh salsa! And it adds beautiful colour and herby flavour. And I’m sure it would also be great with other herbs too! Like cilantro or basil! IMG_1977

This is a quick raw recipe and the only thing you need is a food processor and a knife! Actually, most raw recipes are very quick to make. I notice now that I am eating raw that I spend a lot less time preparing my meals. Most of my meals take five minutes to make and I never have to wait until anything is done cooking! I am just eating the food as nature gave it to us. I think it’s beautiful.
