We are in the process of growing our fresh herbs (cilantro, dill, basil, and more). I can’t wait to use them and preserve them for future recipes. The cilantro you see in this salad is dried cilantro. It’s not the same as fresh, but it works. Also, my husband used the last red onion so I was stuck using white onion. I recommend using red for salads.
