Years ago I was lunching with my daughter at a restaurant in Michigan. Some kind of cucumber salad was my side dish. I didn't know what that disgusting taste was but I was sure the cumcumbers were bad and told the wait staff to stop serving them. However, years later I realized that disgusting dirty sock taste came from cilantro. No, I have not eaten dirty socks, but I imagine them to taste like cilantro. Now, I specifically ask restaurants to leave cilantro out of certain dishes. My family knows I hate it and will not tolerate it. It's truly disgusting.
