Personally I love cilantro. But I've become convinced over time that some people are genetically predisposed to hate it. They can only taste soap and nothing else. I've just seen it over and over. Any leafy herbs you might recommend as a substitute? Flat leaf parsley doesn't pack any punch. I'm thinking maybe thai basil.
