Coriander Pesto Sauce | Cilantro Pesto Sauce | Pesto Sauce

Coriander/Cilantro Pesto Sauce, a delicious sauce made from the coriander leaves. It can be used in pasta, pizza or as spread in sandwiches or even you can serve this as dipping sauce. If you have been following me here in blog or in any social media, you might be knew by now, how much i like coriander pesto sauce. 
Pesto is a sauce originated from Italy and it's usually made with basil leaves.To me, the basil flavor is quite strong and can't really enjoy the basil pesto sauce much, for occasionally it's ok, so i have been making the pesto sauce with coriander/cilantro leaves for a long time now. More than marinara sauce, i prefer to have the coriander pesto sauce on my pizza. So whenever i make pizza at home, it would be cilantro pesto pizza. When i had shared the coriander pesto pizza in my instagram page a month ago, few asked about the sauce. At that time, i redirected them to the coriander pesto pasta post for the recipe. In recent times, again few have asked the recipe for cilantro pesto sauce, thought better to have a separate post for the recipe. So here it is!!! If you like coriander flavor so much, then definitely give this pesto sauce a try!!
