Cilantro Pesto

Cilantro Pesto


  • 1 large bunch cilantro washed and spun dry
  • 1 handful flat leaf parsley washed and spun dry
  • 2 TBSP minced red onion
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • Juice of one small lime
  • 1 TBSP red wine vinegar
  • 1 handful of cashews
  • salt and pepper


  • Combine all ingredients in food processor and puree until smooth.
  • If mixture is too liquid, add more cashews.
  • If mixture is too thick, add more oil and vinegar.


This is a small recipe that is meant as a condiment and may be difficult to make in a larger food processor. If you don't have a small food processor, I recommend doubling or triping the recipe and freezing leftovers in small containers for future use.
