Sometimes called "Chinese parsley." Cilantro is the
leaf of the coriander plant. Cilantro is used extensively in
Mediterranean, Latin American, and Asian cooking, where its unique flavor
seasons salads, tacos, curries, guacamole, soups and stews.
The roots and leaves are a must in Thai green curry. Dried
is not quite as nice as the fresh, but easier to keep and has good flavor.
