Only recently have Americans embraced cilantro,but it is the most used herb in the world.
The Chinese use it so much that has gained the name "Chinese Parsley". The flavor of cilatro is one that you like it or hate it not much in between.The dried cilantro is milder and less intense than the fresh herb so if you want to try it start with the dry. Like with other herbs add at the end of cooking. Cilantro is the leaf of the coriander seed.
