Cilantro flakes: the leaf of the young coriander plant, Coriandrum sativum, an herb in the parsley family, similar to anise. Cilantro's taste is a fragrant mix of parsley and citrus. Before it is used, Cilantro should be crushed, either by hand or with a mortar and pestle. Cilantro is a perfect addition to Mexican dishes; add Cilantro to salsas and bean dips. Mix crushed Cilantro into sour cream and use it as a topping for chili, tacos, or enchiladas. Sprinkle Cilantro over stir fried vegetables for color and Asian flavor. Add Cilantro to sesame-ginger dressing when making Chinese chicken salad.
