Cilantro Pesto

Cilantro is an essential flavor accent for both Latin and Asian foods, and our Cilantro pesto is right at home in both. It’s a bright green blend of cilantro, onions, garlic, lime juice, jalapeños and oil.

Our Cilantro Pesto is ready to use as a pasta sauce or ingredient:

  • Add to curries, stir-fries, chiles, braises and stews to save on labor and add authentic flavor
  • Drizzle over ramen, bibimbap and other Asian or Latin bowls
  • Blend with mayo, Greek-style yogurt, sour cream or other ingredients to make spreads and condiments for banh mi sandwiches, tacos, burritos, burgers and more
  • Add cream or other ingredients to create custom pasta sauces
  • Blend into coconut rice and other Asian rice dishes
  • Mix into salad dressings for a new flavor profile
  • Use as a dressing for grain bowls or cold pasta
  • Use as a finishing condiment for contemporary Asian- or Latin-inspired pizzas and flatbreads
  • Blend with olive oil and drizzle on soups, grilled foods, salads, bowls, sandwiches, flatbreads and more
