“My boyfriend and I were brainstorming what would make a great summer salad and the idea for a cilantro pesto with all green vegetables came to mind. It was a joint effort coming up with the concept. It's fun and yummy too. I am lactose intolerant so I omitted the cheese, but that would increase the flavor for sure if added. Also substituting any pasta, grain, or rice would be great too. The sauce too can be interchangeable with all types of sandwiches, pizza, etc.”
