This recipe of Cilantro Mayonnaise was born by chance.
I had cilantro (we are caring for a friend’s bunny and the bunny loves cilantro). I had 2 yolks left over from another recipe and wanted to make special sandwiches for a lunch with a dear friend. I used it in a panini with tomato and mozzarella. Cilantro Mayonnaise to the rescue!
I would love to have it with french fries or roasted potatoes. The color of this Cilantro Mayonnaise is beautiful. If you have just a little left use it as a based for a dressing for salads.
Keep refrigerated. Remember that cilantro is very easy to grow at home during the cold months, but in summer will bolt.
