    You in or out?

    A percentage of people have a gene that makes cilantro taste soapy.
    For another percentage, the flavor is so overpowering that you can't taste anything else.

    This isn't completely random, this spawns from a fark debate here:
    http://www.fark.com/comments/792947...omatically-add-deliciousness-that-is-cilantro

    And that came from this:
    http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat...allo_recipe_homemade_salsa_in_10_minutes.html

    Waaaaay too much cilantro, a tablespoon at most.

    I love it in salsa, but I will kill a street vendor if he puts it in my spicy pork or cabeza tacos.

    I can't get enough cilantro in my life. Funny thing is when I first tried it, the perfumy aroma almost made me hate it.

    And chop that shit up fine. Using just stems and roots is not out of the question either.

    Cilantro should be treated like the Jews in the 40s. I cant stand the weed nor the smell of it.

    That thread is obviously bias. Your blind love for cilantro will only bring you pain.

    You anti-cilantro genetic abnormality freaks are worse than the peanut-allergy weirdos. God played a cruel trick when he formed your taste buds, because He hates you, and he deemed you unworthy of the pleasure of cilantroey goodness.

    Okay, citizen. Put this patch on your sleeve and report to the rail yard for processing and transportation.

    It doesn't stand out to me. I don't really taste it all.

    My former boss, on the other hand, was allergic to it. When we went out for Metzican, he had to get enchilada sauce instead of salsa. He had alot of weird allergies that developed as he got older. Corn pollen being another.

    Cilantro is great, it can compliment a lot of foods.

    Love it. Makes a nice garnish on Spanish rice. I always have some in my fridge.
