In the US, Canada (I believe) and Mexico, fresh is cilantro and the seeds are coriander. It is also called Chinese parsley.

Years (decades ago actually!) I first discovered cilantro. I'd lived in the Midwest and although my mother was a great cook, pepper was the only spice besides salt that was in the kitchen. I moved to Berkeley CA and WOW! First Mexican food. First cilantro. First avocado. First flauta.

Finally found out that Chinese parsley and cilantro were the same things----- but it was hard explaining 'cilantro' to the Chinese shopkeepers in Chinatown what I wanted! They tried!

I can't either, but I haven't had a decent fresh tomato since I stopped growing my own----no matter what price I paid for them. I don't get to a farmers market much so maybe there could be some there.

For 'youngsters' here----- a 'decent' fresh tomato doesn't crunch when you bite into it. Neither does a 'decent' strawberry. (Oops, now I've shown my age!)

@ bucky---- I'll look into your information about cilantro. Thanks.
About your astrological sign------

All the rest who have taken the time to answer---- many good ideas there and I thank you all.

@ bucky
" i look forward to your continued participation in our little corner of the cyber world"

You might regret that later! lol
Seriously, I love cooking and eating and talking about cooking and talking about what I ate and what I plan to eat (is the the definition of a gourmand or a glutton?)

I especially like what is provincially called 'ethnic' food here in the U.S. although I don't turn my nose up at hot dogs and potato salad. So I'll probably be browsing and asking questions all over this site.

@ Princess----- "which ear?" Never thought of that! (grin)

I will just talk into the ear that is not occupied by a banana...unless the other is an ear of corn.

You could take your salsa in a different direction, depending on what your main dish is or what you want to complement--

Pineapple chunks, preferrably fresh, canned works
a tsp or 2 of sugar, optional
vidalia or red onion
avocado diced
juice and zest of one lime
2 tsp to 2 Tbsp or more, Mint, finely chopped
Mix, chill. serve
Add the avocado just before serving.
