RUN AWAY!!! BLECCHH! CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED. This is the worst recipe I have ever made. The recipe looks good, but the flavors are not balanced end don't work together.

If you are determined to make this, I have a few suggestions. If you use fresh garlic, be sure to temper the garlic in a tiny bit of lemon juice first. The garlic flavor was overpowering ( and no, I didn't use more than the recipe called for). Also, use an oil like canola or avocado that doesn't have a strong flavor, rather than using olive oil. Olive oil and cilantro do not pair well together. Finally, use a little less orange when making the pesto and add more as needed to taste and to get the consistency you want. The pesto was way too liquidy. All I could taste was olive oil, orange, and garlic. The lovely cilantro flavor was totally drowned out.

We could not get this down and it went into the garbage disposal. No one liked it at all. Remarks included "Oh, my gosh, this is horrible. This is the worst," etc.

I created an account to post this review because I feel a duty to warn people. It's not just that the recipe isn't good; it's that it is AWFUL.
