- Eat this first: Sweet corn, cilantro, and tomatoes.
- How to store fresh cilantro: Store upright in a cup or jar with water, like cut flowers. Keep the top covered by placing a plastic bag over them and sealing it against the base of the jar. Keep the jar in sight so that it doesn't get knocked over or go to waste.
