How about an easy, light and creamy green way to celebrate spring weather? Top  any salad with this yumminess  – or use it for dipping crunchy fresh veggies like we have done in the photo above.

Cilantro brings a bright flavor color and lots of nutrition, too! Coriander/Cilantro is a wonderful source of dietary fiber, manganese, iron and magnesium as well. In addition, cilantro leaves are rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin K and protein. They also contain small amounts of calcium, phosphorous, potassium, thiamin, niacin and carotene.

We’re also using the dried and powdered spice from cilantro – coriander. Coriander is a lightly citrus flavored spice. So in this easy recipe we are layering on the flavor and nutrition by using both the fresh and dried spice. That means Cilantro = Nutrition + Flavor!
