Sometimes, you just have to try something new. I am always using cilantro, and then I find that mine has gone past it's prime, so to speak. This dried cilantro can keep on your shelf for a long time, and has saved me on many an occassion. It is available now in most grocery stores, and is usually carried in the produce section. Try this tasty salsa, you might find a new addiction.
1 ripe Hass avocado
1 cube of Cilantro bouillon
½ tsp. freeze dried cilantro
½ cup of boiling water
½ chopped Serrano pepper
1 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
2 Tbsp. finely minced white onion
In a bowl, combine crushed bouillon cube and freeze dried cilantro with the boiling water, stirring to dissolve, and let mixture steep and cool.
In a food processor, place the Serrano pepper, cilantro bouillon, avocado and vinegar. Pulse several times, to combine to a paste. Remove to a clean serving bowl, and stir in the onion. Taste and season with salt, if desired.
Serve with all your Mexican food favorites.
