This is another recipe that can be done in a jiffy. It is a cilantro salsa by chef Lorena García. I found it in her latest book New Taco Classics. This salsa is perfect to eat with tortilla chips, tacos, arepas, hallaquitas, tostones (green fried plantains) and boiled or fried yucca too. Now that grilling season is here, it’s perfect to sample while the grill is ready and also to garnish meat, poultry and fish. cilantro salsa, green cilantro salsa, green salad with cilantro salsaThe possibilities are endless. I even had it as a dressing for a lettuce salad. I hope you like it as much as I do.
