In the produce aisle, I often see people staring at the bunches of flat-leaf parsley and cilantro, trying to figure out which is which. While the two look quite similar, they aren’t identical, and once you know what to look for, it isn’t hard to tell the difference. Compared to parsley, cilantro leaves tend to be more delicate looking. The serrations on cilantro leaves are rounded and lacy looking, whereas parsley usually has pointy serrations. Parsley is typically a slightly darker green. If you still can’t tell the difference, there’s nothing wrong with pinching or rubbing a leaf to check its aroma.
