To me, cilantro tastes like the most rotten putrid onions ever imagined. It explodes in my mouth and ruins my food. I have felt that surely my taste buds must be different from the rest of the world. How else could everyone else tolerate and even like this foul tasting herb? Why would anyone voluntarily eat this? My husband says it doesn't taste like anything to him and he doesn't notice it? How can this be? Cilantro has taken the pleasure out of Mexican food. I would support any effort to eradicate all cilantro from the world with the exception of a lab somewhere to determine if it has medicinal purposes. It is truly nasty. Thanks for allowing me to vent.
