Cilantro Pesto

Use this versatile pesto to season grilled meats, fish, poultry, tofu, vegetables, pasta, omelets, or to spread on grilled bread. A tablespoon packs an abundance of flavor.

  • 1 jalapeno pepper, halved (seeded, if desired)
  • 1 large bunch fresh cilantro leaves, stems removed (about 2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves
  • 2 large cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • In a food processor bowl, place the jalapeno, cilantro, basil, mint, and garlic. Cover and process with several on-off turns until finely chopped. With processor running, gradually add oil and water. Stir in lime juice and salt. (Or, finely chop the jalapeno, herbs, and garlic. Place in a bowl and stir in the oil, water, lime juice, and salt.) Makes 1 cup (sixteen, 1-tablespoon servings).
