I’ve made a tandoori style chicken on the grill that’s garnished with verrrry thinly sliced onions, torn up cilantro and squirted with lime wedges. For a “garnish” it adds so much tastiness to the dish.
My favorite spicy pho place loads the soup up with onions and cilantro, with a bowl of lime wedges on the side. Delicious!
This afternoon I had a hankering for some pico de gallo, and those three magic ingredients were the first into the bowl.
It’s funny how such a specific combo of flavours goes so well across such a wide array of foods. Are there other surprising combos that cut across as many types of cuisine? What else can I use this tasty trio for? I have a big bundle of cilantro in the fridge and may as well use it up.
