This dressing is great on a fresh veggie salad, chicken salad, crisp green salad, taco salads or any tossed salad. Especially good on a salad that is accompanying a Mexican entree.

excellent! Love cilantro, served it with taco salad everyone enjoyed it, my son drizzled some over his subway sandwich the next day he liked it so much.

Really great salad dressing! I used all cilantro (didn't have any parsley) and only 1/2 cup oil. Great way to use up a lot of cilantro!

Yum! This is a great way to use up a big bunch of cilantro from the garden. We used it as a salad dressing & it was gone in a few days. I skipped the parsley & just used 2 cups of cilantro. We loved how it came out. I also tried the same recipe with fresh basil and was thrilled with the simple, delicious results.
