Last night I made fresh tomato salsa with the tomatoes and peppers from my parents' garden. Ah, the perks of house-sitting!
I had to pick up some cilantro from the garden center, though. I'm trying to grow it indoors this time. I have had absolutely no luck growing cilantro in my herb garden. My friend's mom, from Charleston, told me that cilantro likes cool weather and doesn't do well for her in South Carolina.
From what I've read, it's true that cilantro likes some shade and cooler temperatures.
What I really don't understand, though, is how cilantro can be so popular in Tex Mex food. It's *hot* in Texas, right?
