Stance: I hate cilantro.

What does cilantro taste like to you?
Most Hated Cilantro-Containing Food:
salsa..only because I encounter it most often. But I won't eat anything that has cilantro.
Do people in your family hate cilantro, too? Who?
no, not that I know of..but I will start polling them.
If cilantro were a historical malevolent dictator, who would it be? Why?
can't really compare my personal tastes..because I feel confident I am free to avoid cilantro wherever it may appear!
My cilantro story, first experience, recent anecdote, rant, etc...
..the first time I actually identified the horrible offending taste was when I was first married (over twenty years ago) and I bought a bunch of cilantro by mistake, thinking it was parsley. I knew, as soon as I smelled it that something was very very wrong. But I was relieved, in fact, to find what it was-- so that I now know what to avoid. I have been known to spit food out into my hand, if I ever slip up..and lower my guard.
More about me:
I am a YA and MG author..I have never written about hating cilantro, never given that attribute to one of my characters but I am considering it. I was thrilled to find this website..thrilled to find fellow cilantro haters. No one else really understands.
