Preparation, uses, and tips
Do not wash Cilantro until ready to use. Wash Cilantro leaves thoroughly, immersing them completely in cold water to remove grit. Pat dry, or spin dry in a salad spinner. Toss fresh Cilantro with salad greens, or add to most soups and stews near the end of cooking time. Cilantro is best known for it's use in Mexican dishes and salsas.
How to Store Parsley, Cilantro, and Other Fresh Herbs
1. Snip off the bottom of the stems.
2 Make sure the leaves are completely dry. Better to hold off rinsing them until you're about to use them.
3 Fill a jar or a water glass partially with water and place the stem ends of the herbs into the water in the jar.
4 If you are storing the herbs in the refrigerator, cover loosely with a plastic bag. Cilantro loves cool temperatures and should be stored in the refrigerator. Parsley can be stored at room temperature or in the refrigerator. It has been said that basil is ideally stored at room temperature and not in the refrigerator, because it is susceptible to damage from cold.
5 Change the water after several days if the water starts to discolor.
Fresh parsley, cilantro, basil, and other fresh herbs can last up to 2 weeks or longer when stored this way.
Cilantro is used in natural medicine to stimulate digestion. One small serving of cilantro has an amazingly high amount of vitamin A and lutein.
In a large nonmetal bowl, mix all ingredients together.
