Expert Tips

  • Also known as fresh coriander or Chinese parsley, cilantro lends its distinctive flavor to dishes with Chinese, Indian, Mexican and Southwestern inspiration. It resembles a more delicate version of fresh parsley but has a brighter, almost citrusy flavor. Those who dislike this assertive herb describe it as metallic or soapy tasting.
