My wife has recently discovered that she does not like it.
If cilantro were a historical malevolent dictator, who would it be? Why?
Hitler, Mussolini, Khadafi and Ghengis Khan, all rolled into one smelly leaf. Why? Because they all stink and were nasty and pervasive and invaded large areas.
My cilantro story, first experience, recent anecdote, rant, etc...
You don't want to be around me if I accidently ingest the evil herb. I'll belch it for two days. I tell people that I am allergic, and it may be true by the reaction I get from it. I'm getting so tired of eating dry chips in Mexican restaurants if I forget to bring my own salsa. If I order food without cilantro and it still has some in it, I will not spend the time to remove it. I send it back. If it had contact with cilantro, it is hopelessly contaminated and should be disposed of properly, perferrably in a Class 1 secure landfill along with the rest of the hazardous waste.
More about me:
I am married, live in So. California and I have worked in the environmental field for 20 years. I plan to move to Hawaii upon retirement. I hope the world is cilantro-free by then. I wish I was a bio-engineer so that I could develop a cilantro virus to wipe it out. I know some people love it, but they will just have to cope with a cilantro-free world.
