Chucky Avocado Chimichurri Sauce (Paleo + Whole30)

I love avocados and I love chimichurri sauce, so I figured why not put the too together!  The combination of the tangy sauce and creamy avocado create a dressing that goes great on just about anything!  When I am grilling up a simple skirt steak and don’t have enough time to marinate the meat, this is one of my go-to recipes to whip up to add all the flavor.  This also goes great on grilled chicken, salmon or over a salad.
