Why we love it: Cilantro is a flavorful herb prominent in Mexican and Southeast Asian cookery. Try it as an alternative to basil in pesto to top fish or stir it into your favorite salsa recipe. The stems are as flavorful as the leaves—just discard any that are tough.

In your garden: Plant cilantro early in the season and sow seeds regularly for a continued harvest.

Use cilantro in these recipes:
Steak & Potato Kebabs with Creamy Cilantro Sauce
Grilled Chicken Tenders with Cilantro Pesto
