Pepitas and Cilantro Pesto

You can pretty much use this pepitas and cilantro pesto for anything! I put it on toast and on my grilled corn while Catalina loves it as dressing for salads and vegetables. It’s delicious and easy to make! If you find another tasty use for this gem, let us know!

  • 1/2 cup packed fresh cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic (or 3!), roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
