  2. That’s so yummy yummy yummy!! Making it tonight freezing some for another time in ice trays to make ice cube dressing too. LOVE this—all my favorite tastes in one recipe? Thanks Christine!!!!!


  3. Made this the other day…fabulous! Question…do you remove stems from cilantro or just toss the whole stem into processor? I removed stems, took forever! I’d rather throw the whole thing in, but worry how it will affect flavor?
