Related to celery and parsley, cilantro is very fresh, herbaceous, and great with any cuisine, especially spicy food. The leaves, stems, and dried seeds (known as coriander) are all edible.
Keep cilantro in the fridge in a glass of water, like cut flowers.
Or, hang it upside down in a place with good air flow. When it’s dry, remove and crush the leaves and store in an airtight container indefinitely.
Chop up cilantro leaves and use liberally on tacos, in spring rolls, on stir fry, or anything you want to have a little extra fresh flavor!
