Cilantro Pesto

glass bowl of cilantro pesto




  1. In a blender or food processor, combine the cilantro, pepper, garlic, and nuts. Process until well blended.
  2. With the machine running, slowly add the oil until blended.
  3. Add the lime juice and kosher salt to taste.
  4. Cover and let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes, to allow the flavors to blend.


Note on olive oil: If you use 1/4 cup oil, the consistency of the pesto will be like a paste. With 1/3 cup, it will be more liquid.
