I always thought that Cilantro was just another name for Coriander 
(which does indeed taste like dishwashing liquid - particularly the 
fresh leaves) except that recently I was reading a cookbook which 
called for an amount of Cilantro AND an amount of Coriander,

Now I'm confused - anyone have any ideas on this?
