Like I mentioned, Use #1 was on a simple green salad. Whenever it hit a crouton... gold! Such a nice switch-up from the light Kraft I've been using. It felt like cheating, but no! Even icky balsamic would be at least that bad for you. So I thought, wow. This stuff could be used for other deliciousness I'm sure. I made myself a chicken wrap to take to work with leftover chicken, bruschetta and a drizzle of my new cilantro magic. Deliciousness at my desk! Then, tonight when I got home, I went all Bobby Flay on its ass to use as a drizzle over my dinner quesadilla. I think I need to get a squeeze bottle, because my neat drizzling/plating methods are a little on the ghetto side (little Ziploc bag with a scissor snip to the corner). I thought we were going out for Thai tonight, but apparently Matt went to the Wok Inn for lunch and was still full. Damn! I weighed the takeout options, but doing a quick inventory of fridge ingredients (tons of tortillas, Tillamook Extra Sharp Cheddar, shredded rotisserie chicken, Trader Joe's pico de gallo, sour cream and my wonderful cilantro sauce), I realized I could make something infinitely better-tasting for free and sans a stop.
This would be so good on:
- Fish tacos!
- Tossed with curly pasta noodles, fresh tomatoes and chickpeas for a great pasta salad!
- Drizzled over pitas stuffed with grilled lamb and veggies!
- Funky potato salad dressing!
- In breakfast burritos!
- Anything that sprouts out of your springtime garden!
Go get a bottle and start having cilantro creativity!
