There are so many uses for this easy Cilantro Pesto recipe. And I think it’s better than basil!
Cilantro (also known as coriander) is one of my absolute favorite herbs. I prefer to load up my tacos with cilantro rather than shredded lettuce. I just love the flavor.
Most people don’t know how to incorporate cilantro into their diet, besides adding it to Mexican food. So, I want to share a yummy recipe for you to try out.
This cilantro pesto is a twist on the classic basil pesto. It can be used in many of the same ways, and more.
It makes a tasty pasta sauce for chicken or shrimp. You can use it as a dressing, in tacos, on steak, as a pizza sauce or mix it in with rice.
