     I have seen a few recipes interchange cilantro with italian parsley. I've also read that  half parsley/half mint and celery leaves works

    It's a weed Bro!...It grows fast and is hardy. A bottle of Coriander seed from the local market, a pot or patch of dirt and you be up to your knees in Cilantro in a couple of weeks!...JJ

    I used to grow Cilanto in a small pot on the window sill.

    I was thinking of that the other day . I like it fresh for guacamole or salsa but I only use about 1/10 of the bundle or whatever you call the amount , so I throw the rest away . Anyway , a lot of what I read had people suggesting trying cumin . I bought some cumin but I haven't tried it yet . I did end up buying another jar of dried cilantro anyway . I suppose I could buy some fresh and dry the remainder of what I don't use in the future . You might try just a small amount of cumin in a small amount of whatever you're making , that way if you don't care for it you haven't seasoned the entire amount of whatever .
