Followed the recipe exactly. Since the recipe called for walnuts or pecans and I had both, I used both! I didn't heat the pesto since it was fresh made, room temperature and going on hot pasta. I really wonder if cilantro has a stronger taste at different times of year because I got very little cilantro taste from this. I honestly think given a blind taste test I wouldn't have been able to identify it. I liked the addition of the vinegar - it gave it some zip! I'm anxious to try this again after the pesto sits for a day. Thanks!! ***Update: I made this for the second time and used all walnuts and romano cheese. I added the full amount of cayenne which was too much. On some leftover pasta for lunch it was good but I'm still not convinced that I like pesto.
