Cilantro is one of the most widely used herbs in fresh cooking. It’s fragrant yet pungent taste adds a tangy subtle flavor to meats—especially chicken, beef and lamb. Cilantro is used in numerous Latin dishes--especially Mexican. One of my favorite uses for cilantro is in salsa and chicken. I weaned myself off store bought salsa after a friend of mine made me fresh tomato salsa. I believe no self-respecting foodie could ever go back to store bought salsa after knowing how to make it yourself. So here you go!
