And the winner is.....

This was by far the best comment contest ever. If you haven't read through the comments of reader's favorite summer recipes, please do so immediately. There are so many good recipes!

And the big winner of the great Grilled Pizza cookbook is Rogue Cook!
Here's their favorite summer recipe:

I eat pesto like there's no tomorrow during the summer. My favorite is cilantro lemon pesto, a refreshing take on the traditional basil pesto:

1 bunch cilantro
2 cloves garlic
zest and juice of one lemon
1/2 c. toasted pine nuts
olive oil
1/2 c. grated or shredded parmesan cheese

Add all ingredients (except cheese) into a food processor. Add enough olive oil to achieve desired pesto consistency (i.e., like a very soft butter). Toss with your favorite pasta and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

Congrats, Rogue Cook! Please contact me with your mailing address!
And to the rest of ya'll, enjoy your day!
