Creamy Cilantro-Avocado Salsita
Chobani

  • 1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground cumin

Cilantro Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Cilantro Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.
