We call the seed and the leaf coriander. I use both......lots.
I dry roast the seed and grind it to add to my curries.

I have occasionally heard or read "coriander greens". I love coriander and detest cilantro.

+1

I put whole coriander in my Corning/picking spice blend. Couldnít find whole once so I left it out and my corned beef tasted flat. So I hunted down whole coriander and added it to the blend and all was right again.

I never buy cilantro because it tastes nasty to all of us but DD#2. She loves it.
We donít mind it in prepared salsa, guacamole etc. at a restaurant so long as they go easy on it.

DD# 2 would buy Thai food and I only ate the salad with peanut dressing (it was so good). There was always a couple sprigs of cilantro in there. I would eat them every time hoping it would grow on me. But alas ... nope.

Yeah, to be honest, small amounts of cooked cilantro are fine.

Same thing here! Coriander seeds are bright and lemony. Well, I suppose cilantro could be called "lemony", too, since they do make lemon-scented dish soap.

I've found here in Quebec the french refer to both the seed and the herb as coriander. Many are confused when a recipe calls for cilantr o.

I find it really does make the dish but like a lot of you - sparingly!

My wife says she hates green coriander leafs which you call cilantro,however I put it in my Thai salads that she really loves. Go figure,lol. She eats the seeds which I grind for my curries as well. Weird.
