Chimichurri Sauce is a great sauce. If you want something to serve next to your next Air Fryer Steak or Chicken dish, this is the perfect sauce.
Made with a few fresh ingredients, it is so good. It’s not cooked, so while your meat is grilling or air frying, you can quickly prepare this. It goes amazing on a great steak, whether skirt, sirloin, or tenderloin.
This is one of the best sauces you can make in the spring and summertime when the fresh herbs are in season. Truly amazing and will freshen up any dish you serve it with.
