Cilantro, I love you.

You are good in about every application.
Thank you for being who you are, so vibrant and edgy.

Recently eaten it a lot with fish.
Making the fish in a pouch with the cilantro as the bed provides a nice green, lively taste.
Otherwise, since I grow my own, salads, salads, salads.
Honestly, about anything I can sneak it in, I do.

Had an omelet in mind with goat cheese, cilantro, and sundried tomatoes.

Sounds good. Sometimes when I can't find my favorite salsa, and can't make my own (can't buy it fresh here, as I could in California), I will add cilantro to jarred salsa. It gives it a little more of a fresh taste.

That is exactly why I have so many herbs growing.
Just that extra bit is what really can brighten or even make a dish.

I love cilantro. I have some that dried up in the fridge because I forgot to put it in a jar of water :( It's just not the same to try and dry the stuff.

Another Cilantro fan here. For me, salsas, guacamole, tacos, chili, enchiladas, Thai & Indian dishes, etc., etc. just aren't the same with a healthy dose of fresh chopped Cilantro.

And of course I also use the ground dried seeds (Coriander) in many of the same applications as well.

Add some lime, cilantro, garlic, and black pepper to sour cream and you have a nice dip for tamales and taquitos.

Try cilantro and mint for a double whammy effect!

Add my name to the cilantro fan club. I love this herb, I love the way it smells as well as the fresh kick it gives to so many things especially coupled with lime juice. I've posted my all time favorite cilantro pesto and it gets better every time I make it.
