Cilantro is a Mediterranean medicinal plant that is also known as coriander, and it has a strong and aromatic flavor (that people tend to love or hate!). It is found in many savory dishes in both traditional and modern cuisines. It has dark green, hairless, soft leaves that vary in shape, with long stems that hold a citrusy flavor. Not only does cilantro have a powerful taste and aroma, it also comes with amazing health benefits.
