Yea or nay?
I cannot think of an herb that provides bigger arguments. I cannot imagine a ceviche or salsa without it. I have friends who will actually get physically ill when they taste it. What's up with that?
I've also found it a tough flavor to combine with wines, and have always thought "beer" when cilantro is involved as I'm not a big fan of the wines with "grassy" nuances that tend to compliment this spice.
I love cilantro!!
