I have always hated cilantro. All my friends are aware of that. On Passover, the tradition is to dip parsley in salt water. In college, at our Hillel passover, I had about 2 or 3 glasses of wine before we dipped the parsley in salt water. My friend said that he could only find Italian Parsley. I thought it looked a lot like cilantro, but like I said, I was 3 glasses in. So I dipped it in the salt water and put it in my mouth. Everything went hazy, but friends say I turned about 15 different colors of green and red. I was going from disgust to anger. The friend who bought it still claims it was an honest mistake, but no one knows for sure.
