What's The Difference Between Cilantro And Parsley?
By Jasmine Hanner
As many herbs look alike, not all are easily distinguishable, and it’s easy to confuse cilantro and parsley. They may look similar, but the taste is quite different — so here are some ways to tell them apart.
Cilantro is one of those ingredients that people seem to either love or hate. If you are struggling to identify which herb is what, the most important things to keep in mind are that cilantro has a citrusy scent and curved leaves.
Dried parsley is a bestseller in many European countries, making it one of the most popular herbs on the continent. If you’re struggling in the grocery store, remember that parsley leaves are pointed and have two varieties — very tightly curled leaves and flat broad leaves.
