Yummy to use in anything you would associate with cilantro...I like to stir it into black bean soup and chili! Make extra to freeze!

This was good but next time I make it I will only use 1 teaspoon of salt and no more than half cup oil. I did use 6 garlic cloves. Stirred in some soy creamer and tossed with rice angel hair pasta and quartered mushrooms- yum!
