I have a friend who grows cilantro, she loves it. She chopps it up and makes pesto with it, blech!
I think the operative word (s) is "over load." I kind of like a hint of it....that's okay...in Mexican food or even curry dishes. But it does seem that a lot of cooks over load things with it and that might be what bugs me. (?)

Yup. We put cilantro in almost everything!

It's the one herb that I don't like much at all. I can tell right away if there's even a little of it in something I'm eating. I remember years ago I did make a peso with it by substituting some of the basil with cilantro. Maybe I should try this again.

Detest it and will not eat a dish if I can taste cilantro in it. Seems like it is in more and more dishes.

I love it. One of my favorites is an avocado with sea salt, lime juice and fresh cilantro.

My favorite salsa is verde -- heavy with cilantro, but my VERY favorite is this one http://www.mexicoinmykitchen.com/200...alsa-with.html

Thanks for the recipe Renee....looks ummmm...good. lol. I'm working on changing my mind about cilantro. I chopped some up with some bell pepper, tomato and a little onion and put it on my baked potato half that I had with my rib eye. I even put some of that stuff on my salad and choked it down. lol. It kind of louses up the other flavors. I mean, it's very strong. Why oh why can't it taste more like basil? LOL. I just have to keep reading those benefits over and over again.

Hmmmmmmm, interesting! I have only ever had (and make regularly) the cooked (I oven roast until starting to brown) tomatillo version of salsa verde!

I may have to try that one Renee............is it bitter at all?

It doesn't taste bitter at all to me, Coop.

I love cilantro, as with most herbs. Fresh is definitely best, and if I have excess then I dry them myself for winter use. These days, excess isn't typical. AF Base housing is pretty strict. As long as the cilantro is in moderation, just like most herbs, it's great.
