Steak Salad with Chimichurri

This is officially one of my favorite salads of the summer. Chimichurri is a popular topping throughout Central and South America most commonly used to complement  grilled meat. The salad dressing is simple –  a concoction of only a few ingredients that will not overpower the taste of the grilled steak. And believe me, the chimichurri topping packs enough flavor!

1/2 cup finely shopped parsley

4-5 garlic cloves finely minced

1/2 tbsp. red wine vinegar

juice of 1/2 lime

1/4 cup olive oil (adjust amount according to your desired consistency)
