I have hated cilantro since my first expeirience with it At age 12. My mom was hosting a moroccan themed dinner party with her friends and I was helping with the prep of some of the dishes. One of my jobs was to chop A LOT of this green herb that I did not know what it was at the time. After about 1 minute of chopping I started to feel sick from the smell of it. I told my mom and she thought I was being silly. I finnished my choping job and could not get the smell of the cilantro off of my fingers for like 2 days no matter how hard I scrubbed. This stuff gets into your poors! Needless to say, I have hated cilantro ever since. Also, anyone who says just pick it off your food obviosly does not realize that it is the most invasive flavor ever. If it touches your food your screwed.
