What’s the Deal with Coriander Seeds and Cilantro Leaves?

Coriander is called a seed but it is really part of a tiny fruit. The seeds are used to flavor cookies, cakes and candies. Cilantro is the foliage of the same plant and it is used fresh or dried. Freshly chopped green cilantro leaves mixed with chopped tomatoes and onions used, as a topping for tacos, burritos and other Mexican dishes will have you hooked on this plant. The fresh leaves are especially refreshing and tasty.
