We finally made it to a tiny Portugese restaurant called Koo Zee Doo. Everything was delicious, but they served a chopped vegetable salad with coriander red wine vinagrette that was beyond amazing.
I'm trying to re create it, but need some help. The waitress said that the key ingredient was "fresh coriander". But it did not have any cilantro in it. Am I correct that there is no, "fresh coriander" only dried coriander?
The dressing that I've concocted so far is olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, honey, and dried coriander. It tastes very close to what we had last night. But I'm still wondering about the coriander.
Oh, the salad was very thinly sliced roasted beets, roasted carrots, quickly steamed brussel sprouts, and cauliflower, and red leaf lettuce. I know that doesn't sound spectacular....but it reallly was.
