Flavor of the Week: Chimichurri moves into the mainstream

The Latin American condiment is trending in the U.S.

Chimichurri is an uncooked sauce that is ubiquitous in Argentina as a condiment or marinade for grilled meats. Key ingredients include parsley, garlic, vinegar, olive oil and chile flakes. Chimichurri is gaining popularity in the United States though, with an 83% increase in appearances on menus over the past four years. Though awareness of the condiment is highest among Hispanic consumers, chimichurri has mainstream appeal with its use on burgers, wraps and sandwiches.
