Cilantro-Lime Pesto

Cilantro-Lime Pesto recipe
Tired of regular ol’ pesto? Try it with cilantro instead! This simple recipe gets a zesty spin when you swap the basil for cilantro, parmesan for cotija cheese, and use our ever-fresh Persian Lime Olive Oil! The pesto is full of bright and refreshing character (you may just find yourself licking it right off the spatula)! Perfect for marinating shrimp, fish, and chicken, or drizzled on top of rice!  Recipe By Taylor MacDougall

Products used: Lime Sea Salt, Persian Lime Olive Oil


2 cups Cilantro
3 cloves Garlic
⅓ cup Walnuts
¼ cup Cotija Cheese
½ tsp SOOC Lime Sea Salt
½ Jalapeno, deseeded
½ cup SOOC Persian Lime Olive Oil


In a food processor, add the cilantro, garlic, walnuts, cotija cheese, Lime Sea Salt, and jalapeno (omit jalapeno if you’d like to skip the spiciness). While slowly pouring in the Persian Lime Olive Oil, pulse.

Using a rubber spatula, scrape down the sides and pulse until smooth.

Store in an airtight container and refrigerate, use within a week.

Storage tip: add pesto to a clean ice cube tray and freeze. Once frozen, pop out and transfer to a ziploc bag with it's name and date!
