Cilantro Mountain

What do you do with a mountain of cilantro?

First, you make pesto (with some fresh chives, mint, olive oil, toasted pine nuts, salt, pepper, and lime juice). Some of this you will freeze in an ice-cube tray.

Then you make an enormous batch of guacamole.

Then you get creative, and you swirl the cilantro pesto into some homemade bread. It works beautifully.

Yet you’re still left with half a mountain of pesto and more to come. Other ideas?

    I like pesto on angel hair pasta. Saw a recipe for black bean salad using cilantro. Other ingredients, besides black beans: can corn, Roma tomatos, red bell pepper,red onions, green onions,diced pineapple,jalapeno. Dressing of sherry vinegar, lime juice, honey, salt and a pinch of cumin.

    I am hungry enough after looking at your cilantro pictures that I can hardly type!

    I want you to know that I will be staying in the Alumnae House at Agnes Scott from May 1 through May 6. I hope we can go to lunch or tea or whatever if you have any free time during that time.

    You can reach me at my cell phone #: 406-544-1569.

    Hope to see you while I’m there,
