I just recently found my love for cilantro. I put it in almost everything. What are some of your easy recipes with cilantro? I chop some onion, jalepeno pepper, tomatoes, avocados, and squeeze some lemon on it. So delicious!

A green salad doesn't taste the same for me without cilantro. I add it into anything Asian or Mexican. I make my own salsa often (fresh, not cooked) and my hubby who doesn't normally like cilantro always seems to want more. I didn't like it for the longest time cuz' my Dad told me it tasted like soap. It wasn't till 1990's or so when I went to the local taqueria that I fell in love with it! I love it in my homemade hummus.
Trader Joe's sells a Jalapeno/Cilantro one that gave me the idea. Mmm, makes me wanna make some tonight! I add some last minute to my top ramen (don't eat much but when I do) with some chili oil or hot sauce. Chop up real fine and add with lime juice and hot sauce to Mexican wagon wheels (duritos, or duraditos depending on who you talk to here in Nor. Cali) yummy!

I too absolutely love cilantro! I never knew anything about it til I married a Hispanic man and I've always said, "How did I live so many years without cilantro?" It tastes so good in a good hot sauce, or as a lot of people call it salsa. It just adds to the rich flavor!
This dish tastes yummy served warm, at room temperature or cold. If you're not thrilled about cilantro, you can omit and still enjoy simple lime barley ;-)
Rinse and drain barley. Place the 6 cups of water or broth in a saucepan, add the barley and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until barley is tender and water is almost absorbed, about 45 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk together olive oil, lime juice, cilantro, and salt to taste, cover and set aside for flavors to blend.
Fluff the barley, drizzle with the dressing, stir and serve.

Toast cumin in a small skillet over low heat, stirring, until just fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Combine tomatoes, onion, 2 tablespoons cilantro, and chipotle in a blender or food processor.
