The Great Cilantro Divide

Also called Chinese or Mexican parsley, cilantro is an herb you either love or hate.

While some people enjoy the fresh, bright flavor it adds to many dishes, others pick up an unpleasant, soapy taste from cilantro.

If you don’t want to use cilantro in a recipe, try substituting a combination of fresh chopped mint or basil with Italian parsley instead.

Recipe of the Day:  Asian Tomatoes and Rice

This is a quick and easy side dish you can make any time of year, but it’s especially good in summer, when tomatoes are at their prime.

Use a variety of tomatoes – yellow, green, or mottled heirloom – for a prettier presentation.

Makes 4 (3/4-cup) servings

2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes, halved

1-1/3 cups steamed brown rice or 1 (180-gram) package steamed brown rice

1/4 cup Asian salad dressing

1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

*Use as many organic ingredients as possible.

Combine the tomatoes, rice, dressing, and cilantro in a bowl and toss to combine.
