Cilantro, also known as coriander or Chinese parsley, is a popular herb with a bright, citrusy flavor and a fresh, vibrant aroma. It is commonly used in Mexican, Indian, and Southeast Asian cuisine, and is often used as a garnish or ingredient in salsas, chutneys, and curries. Cilantro is a good source of vitamins and minerals, and is believed to have anti-inflammatory properties. When selecting cilantro, look for bright green leaves that are free from yellowing or wilting. Store cilantro in the refrigerator in a plastic bag with a damp paper towel for up to a week, and wash it before use to remove any dirt or debris. To prepare cilantro, chop the leaves and stems finely and sprinkle them on top of your favorite dishes for added flavor and freshness.
