Low Sodium Chimichurri Sauce Recipe (No Salt Added)

This low sodium chimichurri recipe is an easy herby sauce with fresh parsley, cilantro, garlic, oregano, olive oil & vinegar!  This salt-free sauce packs serious flavor, and can easily be made in a food processor or blender.

Chimichurri is a classic Argentinian sauce that goes great on anything grilled: meats, vegetables, or potatoes. This sauce has a deliciously bold flavor, and is such a great addition to your next grill out or BBQ. Serve with low sodium steak or as a dip for low sodium fries!

I love fresh cilantro and parsley, I could eat bunches and bunches of them  (as I do often in my favorite tabbouli recipe!).  If I’m not making tabbouli, this parsley and cilantro chimichurri sauce is my go-to condiment.

And I love how vibrant the sauce is – in color and in flavor! The sharpness from the vinegar is wonderful with the silky texture from the olive oil. And the flavors of the parsley and cilantro can wake up any dull food that needs a bit of extra flavor. This sauce needs NO salt at all, the ingredients speak for themselves.

How Do I Make Low Sodium Chimichurri without Salt?

  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and pulse for 10 seconds, until the herbs are finely chopped. Scrape the sides of the food processor to ensure everything has been chopped.
  2. Taste, and add more chili flakes if desired for heat.
  3. Spoon directly onto potatoes, roasted vegetables, or hot-off-the-grill meats.
  4. Transfer any leftover chimichurri to an airtight container and use within 2 days.

What’s the Best Food Processor for This Sauce?

We have this fantastic food processor that has lasted us years and years, and I have to say I’ve been very happy with it! It gets weekly use, and is great for chopping ingredients for sauces, making hummus, and pureeing vegetables. 

It’s inexpensive and gets the job done!  While you can make this salsa in a blender, I prefer using our food processor to get the chunky salsa texture just right. I also use my food processor for other low sodium recipes like Low Sodium Hummus, Low Sodium Pesto Sauce, and salt free tomatillo salsa verde!
