I use parsley instead. Its not so much the taste of cilantro I don't like. Its the smell. Here's the salsa recipe I use.
2 cloves garlic
1 small onion
1 large tomato
juice from 1/2 lime
large handful parsley (or cilantro)
Coarsley chop garlic and onion. Chop on low in food processor. Microwave for 1 minute. Cut tomatoes. jalapenos into small chunks. Discard jalapeno seeds if you don't want the salsa to be hot. Add jalapeno, tomato, and parsley cilantro to food processor. Chop on low. Combine with garlic and onion. Add salt and lime juice. Chill for 1 hour.
