    1. Coriander is the same thing as Cilantro. Cilantro is the plant part and Coriander is the root part at least in the States. So the recipe should read a handful of Cilantro to us Yankees

  1. Love this salad so much! It’s right up there on my list of favorites, along with caprese salad. Served this alongside a piece of baked salmon and drizzled the dressing over all. The only change I made was to add a dash of garlic powder to the dressing. Yum!

  2. You had me until the cilantro part. Can’t stand the stuff – tastes like liquid dish soap…you know, the stuff you keep at the sink when you want to wash something by hand.
