More About This Recipe

  • What is it about cilantro that makes us want to sprinkle it on top of everything? If you find a recipe that calls for coriander, that’s actually just another name for cilantro—at least in the United Kingdom. It also goes by Chinese parsley. In the United States, coriander refers to the plant seed and cilantro refers to the leaf part of the plant. If you’re on the cilantro-everything train like we are, this dressing can be used on everything! If you’re not a fan of cilantro, don’t count this recipe out. You can swap in parsley or use one of your other favorite herbs, and the results will be just as delicious. If you are feeling extra adventurous, we have several other salad dressings you can make from scratch. We walk you through how to master your new favorite right here.
