Wondering how to cut cilantro? Here’s a step by step guide and video that shows you the best way for cutting cilantro (and our favorite herb saver, too).


  • 1 bunch cilantro


  1. Hold the root ends of the cilantro with your non-cutting hand. Use a large chef’s knife to scrape off the leaves in a downward motion.
  2. Use your fingers to remove any large stems from the cilantro leaves; small tender stems are okay.
  3. Holding the top of the blade with your non-cutting hand, rock the blade back and forth to chop the cilantro. Pull the leaves back into a pile and go over them with the knife several times until the pieces are the size that you’re looking for.
