For a long time I didn't know it was Cilantro that I hated. I would sometimes smell or taste it and go, "what is that disgusting smell/taste?" The worst offender is my Mom's Spanikopeta. Whenever we had a church potluck she would make it because I don't eat red meat. She would tell me, "I'll make something for you to eat," and then it would be Spanikopeta. I would try to choke it down because she made it especially for me, but I just couldn't. After finding that same flavor in other things, I finally asked her what it was and learned that I hate Cilantro! The worst part is, I asked a Greek friend and Cilantro is not even a normal thing to put in Spanikopeta. My mom just uses it because she likes it. BLECH!
