Stance: I hate cilantro.

What does cilantro taste like to you?
Most Hated Cilantro-Containing Food:
I love Mongolian Bar-B-Que, but when I get mine right behind someone who just laced their bowl with Cilantro, I end up with it in my stir-fry. ICK!!!!!!!!!!
Do people in your family hate cilantro, too? Who?
No, they don't even know what it tastes like.
If cilantro were a historical malevolent dictator, who would it be? Why?
Hello, Hitler! Totally evil, and trying to take over the whole culinary world.
My cilantro story, first experience, recent anecdote, rant, etc...
my friends get a kick out of watching me pick the minutest amounts of cilantro out of my Mongolian Bar-B-Que with chopsticks. At the end of my meal, the entire rim of the bowl is covered with tiny flakes of cilantro.
More about me:
Well, since I found this site and now feel totally justified with my hatred for this foul disgusting herb, I am complete. I love that there are others out there like me.

Hi Alice! Thank you! I get so tired of people saying "your Mexican and you don't like cilantro? Thats weird." What is so weird about it? My aunt Blanca use to say that her family in Mexico do not eat chile peppers.She did not grow up eating them.She said food in Mexico is like certain foods here in the states.Like fried chicken and potato salad.No recipe is the same.Kind of like me with Best Foods mayo and gross Miracle whip! You give me a sandwich made with miracle whip or cilantro, I will spit it out. every member of my family in Spokane have their salsa gardens.We all grow peppers, tomatoes, garlic and green onions but NO cilantro. Now I made up my own bottle of dried salsa ingredients that I take in my purse and just add water to rehydrate if I do not know that I am going to go to a restaurant with salsa.If I know, I make ahead of time and take my own salsa. I keep chile roasted and frozen in the freezer for anytime I want or need it salsa.All I do is micro for 50 seconds, peel and add tomato and garlic.If I do not make a trip to New Mexico to visit relatives and bring back a couple hundred pounds of fresh chile, then my sisters and I buy at least 60 pounds of chile we pick at a farm here and add to what we have in our own gardens.We have a freezer full of freezer ziplock baggies of chile year round.I get tired of picking those tiny leaves out of my food and hanging it on the edge of the bowl or my plate too. Hmmm...yumm.I think I will make some now. Also, I was born in Sacramento, but moved away when I was in first grade. Sandra Borunda McClanahan Pass
