Chimichurri Salsa and Witches Kiss

Happy October!

This month I’m going to follow each of my regular posts with a Halloween treat. They are all very easy and fun to share. Please take a minute and tell me if you would like me to continue sharing our holiday treats as we head into November and December.

Chimichurri Salsa

I use this salsa on everything! It’s great on pizza, sandwiches, pasta, rice, chicken, steak, in meatballs, stuffed shells, chips or even right off the spoon. I’ve taken to making it weekly and if you can’t guess, I love it! It only takes about 5 minutes to make.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch of parsley, stems and all
  • White Wine Vinegar
  • Garlic, about 5 or 6 cloves per parsley bunch
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper

Directions:

  • Wash parsley and drop into the food processor.
  • Peel the garlic and drop into with the parsley. The garlic peeling is the hardest part of this process.
  • Add vinegar oil salt and pepper and process until the parsley is fully chopped.
  • I’ve tried to measure the oil and vinegar but it’s one of those taste and add kind of recipes. If I’m not wowed I add more vinegar salt and pepper and try again until I get it where I like it.

Witches Kiss

This is a recipe that was left for me by the witch. She left it on really fun crumpled up paper that was burned on the edges. She asked that I keep her recipe a secret BUT I don’t think you’ll tell her I shared it with you.

Ingredients:

  • Coke
  • Heavy Whipping Cream

Direction:

  • Pour the coke into a glass and top with the heavy cream.
  • Don’t stir!
  • Allow it to sit a few minutes and the cream with separate from the soda creating a spooky effect.

I've never had chimichurri before. Looks good! The drink is also interesting. Would never have thought of combining coke and whipping cream.

I am addicted to chimichurri, and served it weekly on hanger steaks.....I have all the herbs in my garden (until the evil frost kills them soon!).
Great photo of the scary hand!

I love chimichurri too! Thank you for the tips to use it with different things. I really love it with steak but I like the idea of using it with pasta and rice.

Love the Halloween treat idea!

I have yet to prepare a chimichurri sauce but, gosh I read about it all the time. I know I would love it! I need to get of my duff and stop thinking about it and just do it!

I am really liking the holiday theme you have going on this month.

Selba said...

Wow! Salsa definitely is yummy!

I love coke! With heavy whipping cream? Woohoo... gotta try it! ;)

excellent--your chimichurri looks to have the perfect consistency and its color is just gorgeous!
meanwhile, that hand is just about the creepiest thing i've ever seen. :)

What a great idea for Halloween treats, and a nice blog, too!

Ciao Chow Linda said...

I never think to use chimichurri sauce on anything other than meat, but you've given me a good idea.

Amanda said...

Creepy cool glass!

Funny, my Dad would drink Pespi and milk so when I saw this concoction it brought back memories of when I was a little kid.

Maybe I'll give it a try!

YUM YUM YUM. I love chimichurri, but for some reason have never made it with parsley. I use cilantro--because we use cilantro in everything. I am always wanting to use parsley more often because it too is so good. Now I know how, thank you!

Juliana said...

Your chimichurri salsa looks yummie, great when entertaining :-)
The witch kiss sound interesting, coke and whipped cream, have to try both. It seems that you all prepared for the Halloween ;-)

Camille said...

That is very cool. I'm having a halloween party so I think I'll serve these!
