  • 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

  • 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
