As far as other "dislike" foods, I can't really bring anything to mind. Don't particularly care for Brussels sprouts, but I really want to try some ultra-fresh ones that haven't been cooked to death. As a child, I never bought the "they're only little cabbages" line and I've always like cabbage in any form.

I've discovered that, as I age, my tastes change. I used to actively dislike asparagus then, all of a sudden, a friend prepared an asparagus dish (using canned, of all things) and I loved it. Ever since then, asparagus and I have been good friends.

All boils down to I like most everything...so far.
Looks like we are in the minority! I love love love love liver! Liver and onions, with or without bacon is good too, you name it love it! DW and I used to go to a Bonanza in Iowa City when we were in college that would serve chicken gizzards and liver & onions and we would just pig out on em!

My foods I can't stand: Spinach (but I force myself to eat it if it is in Pizza or as cream spinach), and Cilantro. I do not like Cilantro but can tolerate it if it is used in very small doses.

I'll join that minority! I love calves liver and onions. Truthfully though, I don't trust a restaurant to cook it right. My mom did a great job with it, and I make mine like hers, but I won't eat it at a restaurant.

Sauerkraut is OK, but I am no big fan of it. If given the choice between that or caramelized onions and green peppers on a Polish sausage, I will go with the onions every time.

not too many foods on my "can't eat, yuuuuuuck" list, but the one that came immediately to mind when I saw this thread title was rutabaga!


ps: I love liver! (and sauerkraut's okay, too...)

One of these days I am going to have to try a rutabaga just to see what all the fuss is about. I haven't as of yet because I thought someone said they were a cross between beets and something else, and I don't care much for beets. Don't hate them though.

And I actually meant sauerkraut on a Bratwurst not a Polish, although I guess it can go on both. I still prefer smothered in caramelized onions.
