cilantro-pistachio pesto

Awhile back I found this new take on pesto from Poor Girl Eats Well. I love that website! I made the whole recipe: summer veggies,  quinoa, and the pesto. It turned out fantastic, especially the pesto.  The best part was that this recipe makes much more than what you need for one meal, so you get leftovers!  Just like regular basil/pine nut pesto, this is super versatile and is delicious on pretty much anything.
