Hello down there cilantro!
I picked off your leaves, added spices, vinegar, garlic and EVOO and you became…
A fabulous sauce for my flank steak!
I have some leftovers and I’m thinking chicken tacos, smeared with chimichurri, lettuce, avocado…food dreaming for another day!
I think I’ve been reading too many books to my nephews!
