Ahh, coriander AKA cilantro! To eimenit tastes wonderful and to others it tastes like soap. To those people, I recommend trying "culantro" if you can find it. It's milder and doesn't have the detergent taste.

And I find it odd that tortilla chip day and hate coriander day are the same day seeing as coriander is a staple ingredient in salsas, which go on tortilla chips. Oh well.

I always use "coriander" to indicate the seeds and "cilantro" to indicate the leaf. I like them both

That's a North American thing. Everywhere else they're interchangeable/synonymous.

I think they're great too. Ground coriander goes well in basic tuna/chicken salads.

gosh I love cilantro. I have a handful of weird recessive genes but I am sure glad I don't have the cilantro/soap thing going on

Easy there, partner. The man said it's tortilla chip day, not salsa day.

Are you going to eat tortilla chips without salsa? Or queso? Both should have cilantro.

How better to appreciate the taste of tortilla chips on Tortilla Chip Day than without salsa and guac getting in the way

Fair enough. Just seems a little drab to me. To each their own.
