My love for cilantro has grown to a new level this summer. I’ve always appreciated the taste of cilantro in homemade salsa… and now, I’m so addicted to cilantro that I insist on have some on each salad that I make at home.  I guess it’s one of those little herbs that you either love or hate…for me it’s been LOVE. 🙂

Any thing with citrus is also another LOVE of mine… so here’s a super easy recipe to transform boring, basic rice into something extraordinary with the addition of a few fresh ingredients. In this recipe, lime and cilantro are paired to create a classic flavor combination that brings added depth to your dishes.
