I never really knew anything about cilantro so never thought about it. I was at a catered dinner party and was served an asian type salad which I loved and the chef was gracious enough to give me his recipe. I made it a few times and everyone who ate it thought it was lovely (including me). A few years later I made the salad to take to a "pot luck" get together in my neighborhood. Several people asked me for the recipe. I hated it!!!! It tasted like soap to me (and still does). The only difference in my life style that might acocunt for the change is the fact that I quit smoking after many, many years. I don't mind a tiny bit of cilantro if it is crushed and added to a sauce or something but it is not something that I eat intentionally.
