This summer I picked up a beautiful Asian Cilantro plant from our favourite garden centre. Along with a couple basil plants, it was nestled into a lovely little home in the planter on our steps, just outside the front door. Throughout the season, we were greeted by the scents shared with us by these herbs, and it was so simple to poke our heads and hands out the door and snip off some leaves to bring to the kitchen.
My favourite use for the Asian Cilantro is this lovely, light, and cheerful dressing, that will bring a bit of summer cheer into the winter home.
