A Taste of the Mediterranean: Top 10 Herbs and Spices

The Mediterranean diet loves cilantro, which is rich in phytonutrients.

The Spanish word for coriander, cilantro specifically refers to the leaves on the coriander plant. Use it to add a punch of flavor and crisp texture to salads, bean dishes, soups, and salsas. In Spain, cilantro is often blended into sauces made to accompany meat and fish dishes. In America, too, sales of cilantro rise over Super Bowl weekend and Cinco de Mayo, times when guacamole and salsas are popular.
