"I did not like this, and I'm usually a fan of cilantro. To me, the cilantro and the red wine vinegar overtook all the other ingredients and it was just overpowering. Also, I really didn't like the texture - it seemed too grainy for me, no matter how much I blended it. I'm glad this was a sauce to pour over steaks after they are already cooked - if it had been a marinade it would have ruined our beautiful t-bone steaks! Definitely will not be doing this again."

"Cilantro is one of my favorite herbs. It is great in this recipe combined with parsley and mint. The lemon juice adds just the right amount of tartness. You can kick this up by blending in jalapeno peppers instead of the red chili flake. This is like a Southwest pesto. YUM!"
