My first run with the awful herb was in Pico de gallo. I am not sure when the switch from parsley was made, but it turned me off one of my favorite Mexican salads. I admit I have been around too many years and the world changes, but the growing use of this disgusting plant is by far one of the worst I have encountered. Good Chefs are falling under the influence of the dreaded plant. To replace parsley with cilantro is akin to suggesting Annie Green Springs as fine dinner wine.
