you two are funny<br><br>
I'd like to like it, but blech. It tastes like soap to me. And that's what it smells like. I used to buy it for my bunny from time to time (variety) and it was a labor of love, I tell ya, cause the smell rubs off on my hands.<br><br>
I can tolerate a small amount as an accent note in spicy salsa or aji amarillo (Peruvian dipping sauce)

You know, I never used to like it, and was always, "What's the big deal?"<br><br>
Bot now I love it so much that I grow it in my yard and whenever I water the plants I rub some leaves between my fingers and smell my hands obsessively until they ain't smell no mo'.

Soapy? Explain that to me. Better yet, I'm going to go outside right now, rub it all over me, and see if I get weird looks. It'll be like a poll! BGrossed-out glances means they are cilantro haters. Drooling and quivering-of-lips means I've shot them with Cupid's arrow. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">

Report back, haha! I think I read that there's a chemical you either do or don't have, that influences whether or not you like the stuff. Funny enough, google led me to <a href="http://www.ihatecilantro.com/" target="_blank">this hilarious website</a>.

Good stuff! Haha, sorry you didn't get the drooling <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> perhaps you just didn't see enough people?

Cilantro is the devil. It tastes like vomit. I can't even walk by the noisome little herb in the grocery store without wanting to gag. Just thinking about it makes me angry. Grr.

The anti-cilantro haiku are awesome!
