    I seem to always think I'm going to use cilantro but it goes nasty before I get around to it so I was glad to see some people left it out - 6/5/12

    Very Good
    Made it without the salt or cilantro. I like the sharpness the raw onion and garlic add. Decided to toss in some tahini to see if it would add a little more depth. It is very good with or without the tahini although I preferred it with. Definitely will make again. - 10/8/11

    I put in too much onion. It's still good, but a strong oniony taste. Next time I would saute them first. - 1/20/11

    I love this recipe! I make it several times a month and use it for sandwich filling for my lunch. It is quite tasty! - 10/11/10
