Expert Tips

Store a bunch of fresh cilantro, stems down, in a glass of water and cover with a plastic bag. It will keep up to a week if you change the water every 2 or 3 days. When you're ready to use the cilantro, wash it, dry with paper towels, then chop.

Chopped fresh parsley can be substituted for the cilantro.
