What is a roll of cilantro?
I recently got a recipe from a woman I know in Costa Rica who doesn't speak any English. It calls for "un rollo de culantro" which translates to "a roll of cilantro". I can't find any other translation for "rollo" that makes more sense.
So what exactly is a roll of cilantro? How much?

Un rollo just means a "bunch"/bundle of cilantro.

Perhaps it refers to the chopping technique. A common technique for chopping herbs is to roll the leaves into a roundish shape and then chop. It just makes the chopping process easier.
Since herb quantities are subjective in most recipes, i would use between 1/2 and a full bunch (about 1 cup chopped). You can always add the lesser amount and add more to taste. Especially since fresh herbs are usually added at the end of the recipe anyway
