Charlynn,
If you are going to keep a tally, I don't much care for it.

Here's a little useless information.......
Cilantro:..thr leaves and seeds of the Coriander or Chinese Parsley plant
Used in China as early as 5000BC. AS early as 75 AD Roman botanist Pliny The Elder wrote that the best Coriander came from Egypt.
Used in Mexican cooking, curry powders, and in Russia and Scandinavia in liquors. Often added to salsas and canned chili sause. Cilantro also turns up unknown to most as a flavoring in Giun and Vermouth.
Two thumbs up

Okay, I am leaning towards loving cilantro. I am willing and able to take on all debaters on this subject!

I love eating and cooking with cilantro.

I don't like growing it cuz its, ah, scent/aroma, conflicts with my other herbs and flowers. My husband always wants me to plant it. I told him that I couldn't afford to because they sell it so cheaply in the store.

People say it tastes like soap. I know soap from my younger days and my father training me about foul language.

Soap tastes better.

We do a lot of Hispanic cooking. Cilantro is A #1! Carnitas, salsa etc. wouldn't be the same without it.

Yes, Yes, and it is great in salad. It is better than parsley in almost every dish that calls for parsley.

It is almost as important to a healthful diet as is garlic.

I love parsley and am growing to like cilantro- it is overpowering in some things, but I agree that it adds a nice touch to green salads. All this food talk is making me hungry...anybody ever tried it in scrambled eggs? I think I'll go do that right now & let you know later

That'l teach me to get on the computer BEFORE breakfast....
Actually, I added a little shredded cheese. salt. pepper and about a teaspoon of fresh chopped cilantro to my scrambled egg (1 egg) this morning and put it in a toasted whole wheat English muffin- it was wonderful!
Maybe not something to do every day, but it sure was a tasty alternative to the same ole same ole....

Wonder how many other things I should be trying it in?
