I know the love hate affair with Cilantro has been discussed here before.
For those of you who LOVE it, here are a few recipes I stumbled upon.
Creamy Cilantro Dressing
1 Cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup whole milk
4 Tsp minced cilantro
2 Tsp lime juice-fresh squeezed preferably
1 Tsp white wine vinegar
1 Tsp granulated sugar
1 Tsp finely minced onion
1/2 Tsp salt
1/8 Tsp cayenne pepper
1/8 Tsp ground black pepper
1/8 Tsp ground cumin
Whisk all ingredients, cover and chill.
Makes 1 1/4 cups
(Oil based) Cilantro dressing (marinade)
5 T vegetable oil
1/3 cup packed fresh cilantro with stems
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup tamari soy sauce
1 ounce fresh ginger (about an inch of it?), cut into six 1/4 inch slices
6 large cloves garlic
1 1/2 T ground cumin
1 small jalapeno or other chili (optional)
Combine and blend all ingredients together in a food processor or blender until the chili, garlic, ginger and cilantro are finely chopped.
4 tablespoons salted butter
1/4 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel
2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
1/4 teaspoon finely chopped serrano chiles, seeds and membranes removed
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon finely minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon finely grated ginger root
Soften the butter. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until well combined. Place on plastic wrap and roll it, forming a log about 1 1/2" thick and 4" long. Put it in the freezer to harden, and keep it frozen until ready to use
