In our home, cilantro was always called "wet dog" because it TASTED like the SMELL of our outdoor dog when he was getting a bath...disgusting. Now I realize it was the soapy, dirty, wet smell of the dog that is the flavor of Cilantro. So funny when we all get back together for holidays and cilantro is present at a meal, we giggle and remember those memories of years ago.
A few years ago, my son sent me a copy of a NY Times article explaining how 50% of people love cilantro and 50% of people hate cilantro. In fact, they were studying why this was so...hope someone has a link to it on this site.
