Celery Leaf Chimichurri
The local farm stand has fresh picked celery. Unlike the stuff in your grocery store, this is a dark green product that has more leaves than stalks.
So, what can you do with celery leaves?
Chopped fine, they can be used like parsley. The leaves can be used in salads. Here we make a chimichurri sauce/salad dressing/marinade for use on salads, grilled meats and vegetables.
- 1 bunch celery leaves
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 1/2 cup olive oil extra virgin
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1/8 large red onion
- 1/2 jalapeno sliced lengthwise
- 3/4 tsp sea salt or Kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
Put everything in a blender and pulse a few times. Turn the blender on medium speed for one minute. Pour into a Mason jar and refrigerate.
Without a doubt this makes the best salad dressing I ever had.
You can use it on almost anything grilled. It might be a little too strong for fish.
Tonight, I used it in a grilled chicken dish.
