Cilantro has been growing like a weed lately out in the backyard. Since I don’t use it too often in my cooking, I tried giving some of it away. A friend of mine agreed to take some, but then forgot to grab it on her way out the door. Now I have handfuls of cilantro that I need to use.
The humidity has been so overwhelming. I still don’t want to have to turn on the oven, or stand over a hot stove. So this cilantro needed to find its way into a salad.
We don’t have a large backyard, but the space we have is occupied by my husband’s “farm”.
He is a city kid with the soul of a country boy.
When we moved in to our house two years ago, he immediately started making plans with what should be done with the back yard space. He basically wants to grow every type of fruit and vegetable that can survive in the northeast.
