The last time that I had a bunch of cilantro, courtesy of my mami's garden, I made a really delicious goat cheese guacamole and topped off the whole thing with some chopped cilantro. Although the popular Latin herb is a common ingredient in the Mexican dip, there are actually plenty of other ways to use the green. In fact, I wanted to share our 5 best cilantro recipes with you to prove it!
I know that some people hate cilantro, but I'm a huge fan. The herb has some health benefits, like antioxidant properties, has been shown to have anti-anxiety effects, improve sleep quality, and may even have a blood sugar lowering effect.
Personally, I like to keep cilantro on hand by preserving the herb in olive oil. It's the easiest thing to do when you buy a large bunch but only use a little bit for your recipe. So, dig in, buy some cilantro and enjoy it in these recipes!
