      this salsa is amazing! I do have a question though, do you buy dried cilantro or dry cilantro after you buy it and how? I found one jar of cilantro, and used parsley for the rest of the recipe, it turned out great, would appreciate any feedback, thanks

      Normally I grow my own cilantro (it spreads really rapidly & is super easy to grow!) and dry it in my food dehydrator. You can also dry your own in the oven (at 200F) on cooking racks set onto cookie sheets. Here's a complete how to dry your own herbs.

      I have, on occasion, found cilantro at Aldi's for $1.00 per 2 oz container and also at Big Lots for $1. I'm not sure if you have either of those stores near you or not.

      Cilantro grows VERY well in small pots indoors on a windowsill. It's a very tolerant plant and smells very nice too. (Well, I guess the jury is out on this one, I LOVE the smell of it, dh thinks it smells like Feet!).

      Thanks, I do have an Aldi's, I checked there, ours dosn't have it. But I'm going to try growing some of my herbs, it gets alittle expensive buying them. Thanks for all the input!

      Can you sub all or part of the cilantro with parsley? I do not like the taste of cilantro, it is bitter tasting.
