I am looking for a good salsa recipe without the use of cilantro. I love it, but my hubby does not. Are you aware of any herb or spices that can replace the cilantro that would give it an equally good taste? I do use the condiment of spices called Adobe, but it still doesn't give it the zing that cilantro does. Thanks ahead of time for any answers.

Here's a link to a Reader's Request for salsa recipes. There is one there with no cilantro but uses basil instead. I think that you could use parsley instead of cilantro in any of the recipes. It wouldn't add quite the zing of cilantro but wouldn't taste like it either.
Hi ! Try celery, chopped very fine. This is very good and different. I make a good salsa, all ingredients in the blender. I won a local salsa fun contest with this one.
2 fresh tomatoes, or canned or both
4 - 6 jalapenos
garlic powder, not salt
2 stems celery with a few leaves
lemon or lime
salt to your taste
Blend in blender, blend tomato last cause you don't want it to mushy. Try your own measurements, don't overdo lemon pepper.
I would just set some aside before you add the cilantro. I do stuff like this all the time when cooking if something is not to someone else's taste.
I can't abide cilantro. It tastes like soap to me. I usually substitute it with parsley. Using celery sounds like it might be good. Besides, it will add a bit of crunch.
