Oh my, is this delish! I whipped up this delightful pesto when I had an excess of cilantro, and boy am I glad that I did...
Not only is it magnificently tasty, it is amazingly versatile too. I've used it as a dip, a pizza sauce, and a topping for quinoa, and all were out of this world delicious!
And, did you know that cilantro has many amazing superpower medicinal benefits? Not only does it contain a lot of antioxidants, it also lowers bad cholesterol levels & detoxifies heavy metals from the body! How can you go wrong there?!
I will definitely be making this refreshing little creation a lot in the future, and if you choose to give it a go, I am certain you will too. . .
