Chimichurri Turkey

I spent some time in San Diego in another lifetime and stayed with a woman from Argentina. Her mom came for Thanksgiving and smeared chimichurri over our turkey before cooking it. That was the most flavourful turkey I had ever eaten! I'm going to recreate that bird for our Christmas this year.

Chimichurri Recipe

1 cup firmly packed fresh flat-leaf parsley, trimmed
3-4 garlic cloves
2 Tbsps fresh oregano leaves or 2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 cup olive oil
2 Tbsp red or white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 Use a food processor to chop the parsley, fresh oregano, and garlic ( two pulses should do it)

2 Stir in the olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Adjust seasonings.
