There are some foods you just love or hate. No half- way point, no maybe, you are either all in or not in at all. Cilantro and cumin top this list and I love them both. It was always a love affair with cumin but cilantro started slowly and over the years I fell in love. Try to pick bunches that have been harvested young. Once the leaves get dark green and heavier the taste changes and the herb becomes stronger.
I was just in California and had some fabulous food. My favorite was an avocado, cilantro and lime salad that my daughter, Cristina made and served with scrambled eggs. We are talking serious deliciousness here.
