CILANTRO: 
 
Cilantro is often called Coriander, and it is an aromatic annual herb native to the Mediterranean.
 
Its leaves, stems and roots have been savored for over 3.000 years.
 
Furthermore, Cilantro is quintessential in the following cuisines: Mexican, Peruvian, Thai, Indian, Various South American and Caribbean countries, Middle Eastern and in parts of China.
 
Cilantro pairs perfectly with the following dishes:
 
Mint and Parsley in fish dishes
 
Hass Mexican black wrinkled Avocados turned into Jalisco Guacamole 
 
Salads with fruit and citrus 
 
Piquant salsas
 
Thai and Indian Curries

Good Afternoon,
 
Nice to hear from you.
 
Yes, I too like cilantro especially with Mexican regional cuisine. It is also used in Peruvian, Indian, Thai and Middle Eastern.
 
Are there any specific dishes that you employ cilantro in ?  
 
Thanks so much for your post.
Margi.
