My cilantro story, first experience, recent anecdote, rant, etc...
My then future husband (on one of our first dates, no less) took me to an "authentic" Latino restaurant. Being a somewhat sheltered person until that point, my previous Latin food experiences had been limited to Taco Bell. We got the ubiquitous chips and salsa, and when I took a bite, it tasted weird. "I don't think they rinsed this bowl out before they put the salsa in it!" I exclaimed. My boyfriend asked why, and I replied "Because it tastes like dish soap!" The look on his face was enough to tell me he was rethinking our relationship based on my sudden bought of insanity. "I don't taste anything like that." He said. I persisted, and so we began to narrow down the ingredients of the salsa. After discovering no problems with the tomatoes, onions, or peppers, I pulled out a little green stem and chomped down on it. "Ewwwwww!" I exclaimed in disgust, "This is it!! What IS it??!" The rest, as they say, is history.
More about me:
Just a thirty-something married mom of two teenagers.
