I'd tend toward leaving out the cilantro.

Two more months to go for my tomatoes and peppers to come in. The herbs
come and go. I will make sure that CILANTRO comes in also around the same
time. At that time the canning equipment gets dragged out. For now the
produce store has some very good salsa until the garden comes in. I ran out
of my homemade canned salsa in January. I plan on making more for next
year. I use the ball home preserving book for my recipes.

I forgot to add, thanks for the site. Fresh salsa is also on the agenda
this fall.

Blasphemer! Cilantro is an essential salsa ingredient. Dear DIL made
a fantastic multi-colored pepper salsa last weekend and brought the
leftovers to me. Something was missing so I upped the garlic, onion
and lime content, but couldn't round out the flavor until I added a
little chopped cilantro to it. *That* was the missing ingredient.

A sizable percentage of folks dislike it, and it is very easy to add.
My wife and I ordered a full order of guac recently. It came with
cilantro, chopped onions and chopped tomatoes, on the side. She put a
big scoop on her plate and added cilantro.

We've already had a few small tomatoes, and got our first jalapenos a
few weeks ago. What tomato varieties are you growing?

Guacamole is a whole "nother" animal. I want it very simple and don't
want it sullied by salsa, onion or cilantro. However, cilantro is not
negotiable for me in other salsas.

That's a nice site, thanks.

But I'd put my avocado salsa up against theirs any day.

Well they're two different things completely. Salsa that has tomatoes
or tomatillos, is nothing like salsa that has no tomatoes or
tomatillos.

I don't use onion in any salsas other than pico de gallo, but that's
just a personal preference. Putting in cilantro is a deal breaker for
lots of folks. I'd also seed the jalapenos, especially for avocado
salsa.

15 Roma's and 15 Beefsteaks plants for canning. 2 Brandywine's, 2 sweet
cherry 100's, 1 sun gold cherry and 1 early girl for fresh eating. All for
me and maybe some family members. Extras goes in the compost pile.

JalapeƱos, banana and cayenne peppers seem the first come in and easiest to
grow. It is the Sweet Red and Gold peppers that I have a hard time growing.
But will keep trying.

The stems should only be used if you're a dirt poor Mexican. I can
enjoy a tomato based salsa--that stuff that seems like pureed extra
mild Ro-Tel that they have in dumbed down Mexican joints--with
cilantro leaves, but it's a hassle picking out the stems.

If your only problem is with restaurant food, then maybe it's real
soap you're tasting, not the plant. Stop being such a baby.

I hate to agree with Bryan-- but I've used store bought cilantro and
tried growing my own. I've nibbled leaves and buried it in a
recipe. My impression was always gasoline, not soap--

Why do you find it hard to believe that some folks taste things
differently than you do? [for that matter- haven't you ever tasted
something that you never cared for and found out *your* taste buds
changed?-- martinis and blue cheese are 2 that suit my palate now,
but didn't for the first 50 years]

Tasting like soap is one thing, but it overpowers everything to top it
off.

There is one burrito chain I went to, I child chipoltes or something,
I would have been happier with a microwave burrito, the stuff had one
flavor, cilantro

You are an unknown, so I won't consider you a complainer. I do
understand that you think cilantro overwhelms other flavors, because
it's quite assertive - but it's something that does find its place in
the medley as your taste buds mature and become accustomed to it.

Depends. A few of us have the 'wrong genes' for cilantro and it tastes
like soap. I'm one of them. People have tried to describe to me how
it's supposed to taste and it sounds like it would be very good.

I got it a few times when I was first married as Don likes it but he
kept forgetting and putting it in my food too. Charlotte inherited my
genes for this as well. She's an adventurous eater like all of us
(raised that way) so she tried it when she was 7 and spit it out in a
napkin right away. 'Tastes like soap Mom!' I didnt even tell her that
it tastes like that to me, just that 'Daddy likes it, Mom thinks food
is better without it'.

I do have several recipes that use it, but they are for Don and i make
a separate batch for me and Charlotte when doing those. Don just goes
'tsk tsk tsk, you don't know what you are missing'.

BTW, for those of us where it is 'soap weed', it's not something you
grow out of as you mature. It will be the same when I am 90 if I live
that long.

You have your cilantro disability but you STFU about it. I don't see
you also turning threads where cilantro is an ingredient into a thread
that's all about you and your attitude about "soap weed".

LOl, nope! I really wish I could eat it. Don tells me and Charlotte
we are really missing out.

Oh well, there are so many other things to eat! Don says it's a
natural with almost any salsa. Poor fellow gets cilantro restricted
here. I get him some at times though if he promises to not forget and
put it in ours!

Oh, Don says the best cilantro is the one I grow from seeds in our
container garden. I have been putting that in one of the pots for the
last 2 years. It does really well in a container if you or others want
to try that.

His favorite recipe, made in small amounts since he's the only one
eating it:

1 small tomato (about 1/2 cup chopped/minced)
2 TB onion, sweet vidalia or red preferred
4 sprigs cilantro minced
1 TB minced bell pepper
1 TS minced raw garlic
Black pepper to taste

Oddly, he also likes a little sour cream mixed in this which to me is
not a match, but he likes it that way.

Sounds like he's not going for pretty, he just wants his salsa and
sour cream on a chip in one easy bite. Since he's the only one eating
it and he likes it that way - it's easy enough accommodate his taste
in salsa. Ah, the things we do to food that say I l-o-v-e you honey.

i resent the insinuuation that someone who doesn't care for a particular
food is somehow unsophisocated or immature in their tastes, it doesn't
matter to me if its genitic, as are this , asparagus and a few others,
childhood truauma, your mom made you eat it, or it looks/tastes/smells like

Hehehe! As you can see, it's what would be called a 'savory' salsa.
Probably cilantro heavy for most? Dunno! I just know the last time he
had some he tried to kiss me and I told him 'No Way Loverboy!'.

His alternatives are to add just a little sweet cane vinegar (which
also doesnt sound like a match to me but *he's the one eating it) and
some hot sweet chile powder blend (he prefers the Japan one we can get
locally but there are plenty of others that will do).
