Raw Cilantro Pesto

Raw Cilantro Pesto

There is nothing better than homemade “easy to make” raw cilantro pesto. When I buy store purchased brands they tend to be days or weeks old and, well, pesto should be fresh. I prefer farm to table as much as I can. Fresh is just better.

This paleo recipe is free of dairy and the taste is superb. I even love to add it to my Paleo Chicken Strips in Salad for that extra bite, or as a side condiment to enjoy with my Paleo Shrimp Recipe. Delicious.

Enjoy and be sure to make extra. You will be happy you did!
