Lon and I love trying new stuff so when we saw a new herb in the farmer’s market, we had to try it. The sign said Delfino Cilantro and it smells just like the cilantro or Chinese parsley available in your local supermarket. The fern-like leaves are attractive and the flavor is like a parsley/cilantro mix in a milder form with a hint of citrus.

The flavor seems too mild to withstand cooking but works well raw: try salads, salsas, or freshly chopped and sprinkled on to any dish right before serving.
