Do you like using fresh herbs in your cooking, but never use a whole pack? Waste money on those jars of ready chopped seasoning?
I love using fresh basil. Tried to grow it from seed...had no luck. When I buy it from the store I usually end up throwing out half the package. I hate waste!!
I add fresh cilantro and basil to my green salads for a different taste. I find that the same salad over and over can become boringÖ Depending on how much of each is added you donít really need much dressing at all if any due to the strong flavors in herbs.
For the same price as a bunch of cut fresh herbs at the supermarket, you can buy a small potted herb plant at Home Depot, Lowes, etc. Keep it on your kitchen windowsill and use when you're cooking. Fresh herbs add so much flavor that you won't even miss the salt and fat you cut out of the recipe!
