    What do you do with cilantro?

    Shop Now
    I decided to expand my little balcony herb garden beyond basil this year, and I added cilantro and mint. I'm also getting a bunch of cilantro in my CSA box this week.

    Honestly, I'm kinda stumped as to what to do with it ... I started doing some searches and found lots of promising recipes, but I'm putting it out to the PB peeps ... how do you use it? If you're just going to run pick some cilantro and throw it into something ... what do you throw it into?

    SALSA! Chopped onions, diced roma tomatos and finely chopped cilantro makes a delicious salsa It's so good in guacamole as well.

    Put it on any type of Mexican food. I also like it on salads.

    I chopped some and used it to coat a London broil along with garlic, a touch of cumin, and other spices. It was really good.

    Use it to garnish any curry-type dish. If you eat yogurt you could make this: Cucumber-Mint Raita Recipe at Epicurious.com
    and garnish it with cilantro too.

    Salsa is perfect. Cilantro Chimichurrie marinade or sauce - cilantro minus stems plus lots of garlic in the food processor with olive oil and vinegar.

    i've made a pesto (similar to the chimichurri above) - cilantro, olive oil, parm, lime juice, walnuts or pecans, and a serrano or jalapeno, all in the food processor. I used to use it w/ pasta, but if you thin it out, it makes a nice salad dressing. I like mine real lime-y.
