Cilantro Spread Butter / Cream Cheese Spread Mix, Hand-blended Dry salt free Cooking Herb Mix, no salt, gluten free
From Backyard Patch Herbs
Cilantro Spread - One of my original blends first crafted back in the 1990s, this is a butter and cream cheese spread mixture. The blend contains cilantro and parsley making it a perfect compliment as a tangy cheese ball or flavored butter. This blend has just the right amount of cilantro you can substitute it for any recipe calling for dried cilantro or use to create a vegetable or tomato salsa. In this blend parsley and cilantro are accented with oregano and thyme.
Like all blends from the Backyard Patch I guarantee an 18 to 24 month shelf-life, because I use only the freshest ingredients. I raise all Backyard Patch herbs organically and my mixes are chemical and pesticide free.
This mix comes in zip seal pouch for easy storage and contains enough to make several recipes. All Backyard Patch herbs are raised organically and are chemical and pesticide free.

I make 39 different "Herb Mixes." Each is blended to make a specific food item, like a dressing, rub, dip or spread. Recipes and tips for using the blend are included. These are packaged in a zip seal pouch with decorative labeling.
Because I grow and blend the herbs myself I can assure you no preservatives or pesticides have been used. I can also guarantee that these blends will hold up to storage for at least 18 months and still provide a flavorful item.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask and if you want this or another blend made without certain ingredients, please ask as I can accommodate food sensitivities.
At the Backyard Patch I craft blends of home-grown herbs to use in cooking and entertaining. Each mix comes in a zip seal pouch for easy storage along with tips, instructions and easy-to-follow recipes for creating herb-flavored delights. Although each was originally crafted for a particular purpose, years of experimentation by customers and family has resulted in extra recipes and variations which are included with each mix.
Although the weights vary each package contains three (3) tablespoons of the blend which in most cases is enough to make at least two recipes.
