      This is SO good! I love pesto, and cilantro makes a very special and different pesto. We had it over pasta, but I can see many possibilities with this recipe. You have so many good recipes, PaulaG. Thanks!

      What a fantastic idea! I got a panini maker for Christmas and tagged this recipe in Zaar tag because I thought it might be good on a roast beef panini with some asiago cheese. I had a difficult time getting cilantro because of a recent freeze here in California. As a result, I only made 1/4th of the recipe (yielded a little over 1 cup). The flavor was absolutely wonderful. I can really see the possibilities. It was great as a dip with tortilla chips (kind of like a flavorful guacamole), the roast beef sandwich was heaven...I even think it would be tasty on pasta or toast triangles. Highly recommended (5 cups would be a lot though!).
