I hate cilantro, unless it's in Vietnamese food.

The NYT recently had an article about the whole cilantro hate/love thing.

Ugh, I don't like cilantro. I can tolerate it in very small quantities. But we have a mexican restaurant nearby that has EXCELLENT chips and queso, they just overload their salsa with cilantro and it ruins the whole thing. There's another resturant that has REALLY GOOD shrimp tacos, but again, overloaded with cilantro; at least there I can order it without cilantro, but occasionally I forget and it's very sad.

I have a friend who grows cilantro, she loves it. She chopps it up and makes pesto with it, blech!

LOVE cilantro. I didn't realize it had so many benefits either - thanks for sharing!

I can take it or leave it. if we are making a dish that calls for it we will add some (but only if we have some growing in our garden... we dont' really buy it much at the store). I don't mind it in foods but I'm not real fond of the smell. To me is smells like stink bugs lol

A friend made some salsa one time and the cilantro was so overpowering and really smelled so much like stink bug that I was convinced that I had actually eaten a stink bug and almost lost my lunch lol

Exactly this. If I'm making something and we have cilantro more times than not it's being put in it. I love the smell, the taste, just all of it

Okay....went to my aerobics class, then took my son's dog for a walk, then stopped at the store and bought cilantro. It's in a plastic bag. I've made my first baby step. c/t. Now, I need to think of something to do with it. I also bought a rib eye steak. Should I ruin my salad with it? Or make some pico de gallo and put it on something? Maybe a small potato with that on it. (?) Hmmm. I've gotta develop a taste for it, right? I mean...after all, look at all those health benefits. LOL. You guys who already love the stuff...that's great. You're ahead of the game.
