cilantro

Cilantro, also known as Chinese parsley, is an annual herb in the same family as dill, carrot and parsley. Like the fresh herb, dried cilantro is used in salsas, chili, tacos and enchiladas and in other Mexican foods. It is also used in place of the fresh herb in Asian stir-fries.

Dried cilantro has a much milder flavor than the fresh herb, but is a suitable substitute when the latter is not available. Generally speaking, 2 tablespoons of dried cilantro is equivalent to ¼ cup fresh herb.
