Stance: I hate cilantro.

What does cilantro taste like to you?
Most Hated Cilantro-Containing Food:
I don't hate salsa, I just hate how so many salsas contain it.
Do people in your family hate cilantro, too? Who?
If cilantro were a historical malevolent dictator, who would it be? Why?
My cilantro story, first experience, recent anecdote, rant, etc...
I'm pretty sure I've got that enzyme or whatever in my saliva that makes cilantro taste different to me than "normal" people. I refer to it as the VILE WEED (after Newman's description of broccoli in Seinfeld), or sometimes the E-VILE weed (evil & vile combined). I will admit that after having moved to Texas in 2007, I have grown more tolerant of cilantro in salsa, but only if it's very finely chopped, not fresh, and sparse. Surprisingly, in 2013 I tried a dish at an Indian street food truck that had a cilantro-based sauce, and it actually tasted quite good. I have to believe that whatever else was in that sauce successfully negated the flavor input from the cilantro.
