I can't remember my first run in with cilantro but I love Mexican food but hate cilantro so I spend most of my time picking it out of the salsa. Sometimes they cut it up so small I can't get it all out then the whole meal is ruined.
To make matters worse, I am a Quality Control Inspector for produce so at least once a week I have to inspect the dreaded cilantro. Try getting that horrid soap smell out of your nostrils after looking at a few cases of it. Yes I said cases not bunches.
I don't understand why flat parsley isn't used instead of the awful tasting and smelling herb.
