If your herb garden is anything like mine, it's taking over. I'm getting creative with how I'm using my herbs, and I'm so excited with how this Cilantro Pesto recipe turned out!
I use a LOT of cilantro in my cooking as it is. Some people hate cilantro, and others love it. I am one of those people who love it and the crisp, refreshing flavor it adds to dishes, especially as a finishing touch. So when I say I have a crazy amount of cilantro, that's saying something.
This Cilantro Pesto is going to be completely different than any other cilantro recipe you've ever had or tried. It's got such a diferent flavor profile than a traditional basil pesto. It's perfect for so many different things, and I can't wait to see how you experiment with it!
This Cilantro Pesto would be good as a sauce over a prepared dish, a cooking sauce to cook alongside a protein, as a marinade before you cook, or even as a spread for breads or other dippables.
