    Raw and Creamy Cilantro Sauce

    hey all !

    i have never developed a taste for pesto. when i found this sauce, i was immediately intrigued. herbs, nuts, olive oil...sort of pesto-ey. once i made it, i was hooked for life. i have used a couple spoonfuls on my salads, you could use it as a dressing for a pasta and veggie salad, a topping for a chicken breast, a dip for raw veggies...the possibilities are unlimited! i make a double batch, because it is so much work to wash and strip the leaves off the parsley and cilantro. i find that a good sized bunch of cilantro or parsley equals about 1 cup. i also toast my walnuts for about 10-15 minutes in a very low oven (275 degrees) to give them a better flavor. dried rosemary is fine also...although i don't know the exchange for fresh and dried herbs. if i have this in the frig longer than a day, i add a teaspoon of orange juice to it everyday to freshen up the flavor. i hope you try this and enjoy it as much as i do! jeannie

    ■1 cup chopped cilantro

    ■1/2 cup walnuts
    ■1/4 cup olive oil

    ■1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
    ■1/8 cup water
    ■1 spring fresh rosemary, about 1 tsp, chopped

    Pulse all ingredients together with a food processor or immersion blender, until mostly creamy- some chunks of walnuts add to the texture.
