If cilantro were a historical malevolent dictator, who would it be? Why?
My cilantro story, first experience, recent anecdote, rant, etc...
Click to read and comment on my story! My introduction to cilantro was at a salad bar in San Diego in the early 80's. Took a bite and immediately went back and said, "There's something rotten in my salad." They looked at me like I was nuts. I had never heard of or tasted cilantro before then. How I managed to dodge that bullet for so long I don't know. Unfortunately, years of blissful ignorance ended that day. I HATE CILANTRO! In addition to the leaves tasting rotten, to me the seeds taste like soap.

Update 7/13: Hadn't visited this site in awhile and just checked back to say I've made an awful discovery--Cilantro Hair Conditioner. NOOOOOOOO!
