Recipe: Avocado nachos dip with coriander

Sauces, dressings and dips with herbs
February 08, 2010

Newborn corianderSometimes it seems that I can't have enough fresh coriander. I sow it three times:
- in September to harvest the leaves during winter
- in January to harvest the leaves in spring
- in March to harvest the leaves during summer and the seeds in autumn

So now I'm harvesting fresh leaves from the autumn plants, and these in the picture are the newborn January plants.

With this trick I prepare fresh dishes like this during winter.
