Did you know that Cilantro, Chinese parsley and fresh
coriander leaves are different names for the same herb
plant? Cilantro usually refers to the fresh leaves, and
coriander to the seeds. They are quite different in
flavor, and are not used as substitutes for one another.

Fresh Cilantro is one of my faves for Summer seasonings
chopped up and mixed in dressings and's
peppery flavor making it perfect for salsa.

When purchasing cilantro (also called Chinese parsley),
check for leaves that have a bright green color with no
yellow spots, and no evidence of wilting. Fresh cilantro
doesn't last long, and you'll need to store it in the
refrigerator. One simple storage method is to put the
cilantro in an air-filled, securely closed plastic bag
in the vegetable crisper section of your refrigerator.
However you can also place the cilantro in a cup of water
(stems down like a vase of flowers), covering the cup with
a plastic bag, and returning it to the refrigerator. If
you change the water every two days the cilantro should
last up to two weeks. Be sure to wash it thoroughly
before using!
