Saturday: The other "C" word
Delfino cilantro pesto.
As we mentioned previously, we recently learned that the original pesto may in fact have been cilantro rather than basil. When we picked up this lacy varietal of cilantro, we decided we'd try taking pesto back to its roots.
Otherwise, this is just a standard pesto with Parmesan, garlic, walnuts and a generous amount of olive oil. Despite her cilantrophobia, Lizz gave this dish her seal of approval.
