Cilantro and I go way back. It is tied for first place as my favorite herb (sharing its slot with Basil, because… CAPRESE). Oh, you don’t rank your herbs? Weirdo. I remember my mom introduced it to us as kids atop one of the many Mexican casseroles of childhood and we were hooked. It has such a way of brightening up any dish and sprinkling it with fresh fiesta flavor—my favorite.
I have since incorporated it in every dish possible as my husband will literally eat it off the stem.
Now, that’s a bit overboard, even for me, but we LOVE Cilantro.
You get it.
However, of all the uses for Cilantro, it seems to best compliment the appetizer of all appetizers—SALSA.
Since we all know that salsa is ALWAYS appropriate, I present to you with one of our favorites!
This recipe calls for an ENTIRE bunch of Cilantro which is just heavenly and plenty of garlic to go around. And with the use of the food processor, this salsa will be in yo’ face within 10 minutes!
Because who has time to spend any longer in the kitchen when it is summer! Other than the obvious, (tortilla chips for lyfe) this is great on tacos, as a topping for chicken, and always the perfect addition to your favorite Mexican bowl recipe!
Oh yes, glorious sun + sunglasses + pool time. So, grab your floaties and a bag of chips…I got the salsa!
Because I am a cool internet friend like that.
