There are many reasons to make this cilantro pesto. Both tasty and health beneficial, it’s good on any number of dishes from pasta to potatoes, and summer salads. It would also make a mighty delicious sandwich spread. When I made the cilantro pesto I tossed it over 2 large diced potatoes for a healthier version of potato salad.
2 cups cilantro
½ cup pine nuts
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice (about ½ a lemon)
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp. water
½ tsp. sea salt
¼ tsp. pepper
For additional flavor (optional):
Add 1 to 2 cloves garlic, peeled
Add all ingredients to a high speed blender. Slowly increase speed to high, blend for approximately 1 minute.
