    I had mine with grilled chicken and fried green tomatoes! Super good I love cilantro so this was right up my alley. Made my house smell super great as well.
     
    Delish! I didn't have lemon, so I used lime instead. Perfect added to pasta for a fresh, summery dinner!
    I didn't bother with the parsley, halved the other ingredients, put everything into my mini-chop and presto - pesto! My spouse doesn't care for traditional basil pesto, but we like to use this in simple quesedillas. Yum!
