Hate cilantro? Try celery leaves!

Foodie2 | Jun 19, 200612:32 PM     24

Thanks to this board, and posts from a while ago, I learned that you could sub celery leaves for cilantro to approximate the "clean taste" normal tasters associate with it, and avoid the "blech! gross! soap! taste" I (and cilantro-haters) taste. I tried it last night, in a tomato/onion/jalapeno topping that went on top of a curried rice salad, then topped with garlicky yogurt sauce. The celery leaves lightened things and tasted fresh. I'm not a huge celery fan, but you didn't get "celery" taste, just a green freshness. I'm inspired to try this in all sorts of dishes now. Yippee!
