Cilantro Pesto

This beautiful condiment is a perfect topper for all sorts of things such as tacos or virtually anything off the grill. It is also great as a sauce for my Lightened-Up Shrimp and Grits.

Cilantro Pesto

  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro
  • 2 T fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 c fresh shredded Asiago cheese
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 t kosher salt
  • 1/4-1/3 c extra virgin olive oil

In a food processor, pulse the cilantro, lime juice, cheese, garlic, and salt until smooth. Through the shoot with the processor running, stream in the oil. If you want a thicker pesto with more intense flavor, add 1/4 c oil. If you want a milder, smoother pesto, add 1/3 c oil.
