Chef Lonnie Zoeller's Cilantro Recipe

 

Chef Lonnie Zoeller uses his special cilantro recipe on our Duck Arepa and Tomato & Hearts of Palm Salad, and he wants to share the secret with you. Try it at home at let us know what you think!

Zoeller says: "I like this dressing a lot because it’s pretty versatile -- salads, chicken, shrimp. I think it’s good for most things grilled, but it’s nice on just sliced, ripe tomatoes, or even in sandwiches. This is also a nice base recipe if you would like to add something or built on, like adding cumin or adding more chilies or garlic. For me, the recipe is just a simple guideline, and with this one there is room to adjust it to however you want -- spicy or sweeter. I feel like sometimes a great sauce or dressing is really more valuable because you can use it more often and in different ways."

INGREDIENTS

  • 1bu    Cilantro
  • 1.5c    Blended Oil
  • 2ea     Limes, zest and juice
  • ½ c     Sugar
  • 2ea    Jalapenos
  • ½ c     Fresh Ginger
  • 5ea     Garlic
  • about 1tsp salt to taste

DIRECTIONS

  • Cut and remove the seeds from the jalapenos, season with blended oil and salt and pepper and grill until charred and tender (you can also broil the peppers if a grill is not available)
  • Chop the cilantro (I like to use most of the stem as well)
  • Peel and mince the fresh ginger and garlic
  • Put all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth
