I am so glad to have found othes that hate cilantro. My first experience with it was two years ago when I went grocery shopping for Thanksgiving dinner. When I opened what I thought was parsley, I almost threw up. I thought I had bought bad parsley so I threw it away and went to another store and bought more parsley. This time it wasn't in a bag and I smelled it first. A year later I went to buy parsley and picked up cilantro again. After smelling it I noticed a little band around the stuff that said cilantro.This is when I found out what it was and realized that this was the taste that I didn't like in Mexican food.Thank goodness Cajun food doesn't call for this nasty stuff. I'll never mistake cilantro for parsley again.
