For those that dislike cilantro, what do you think of Chinese parsley?

Had to look canola oil up. It's rapeseed oil in UK aka "Vegetable oil". I have some cold- pressed rapeseed oil for salads etc,. but don't like it much for frying. I tend to use sunflower oil for that.

I also have EVOO for salads, etc.

I don't fry a lot of foods but I do like to start off casseroles, etc., by sweating the onions and other veg in oil and butter and browning the meat. Can't remember when I last had a home cooked chip/french fry.

If you've ever had cilantro, you've had it

Deep frying is not my cup of tea ..

I sauté with extra virgin gold olive oil and / or butter or a combo depending on recipe ..

I use high quality Green Evoo for Salads ..

Anything else is oven or does not require cooking as in raw ..

I have had it a couple of times and I didn't like it then and I don't like it now.
