I think the first time I ever encountered cilantro was when I was living in China with my BFF and we would go to this restaurant on a regular basis for our favorite meal. Part of the dinner was a soup that had such long noodles they gave you a pair of scissors to cut them with - fun right?! In this long-noodled-soup was also little green flecks of cilantro that tasted like oh my, somebody shredded pennies and put them in this soup! Personally I don't like tasting like I've been sucking on door knobs.
I would have worn this shirt had I known they make them!
I steered clear of cilantro when at all possible until Neil and I were in Mexico a few years ago and it was served up in a lot of the foods we were eating. I don't know if it was my matured taste buds but I couldn't get enough of it. I love the stuff now. I know cilantro can be a hot topic (I mean, I'm blogging about it so...) and you either love it or you hate it. I want to know how you feel about it.
- I love it, everything is better with cilantro!
- No thanks, I prefer to keep my change in my pocket.
