Notes
Tasty Tip
When using fresh herbs, be sure to rinse them very well before them adding to your dish to remove any dirt. To clean fresh herbs, cut off any large stems if necessary, place the leaves in a large bowl of cold water, and toss the herbs to remove as much dirt as possible. Remove the herbs from the water, drain in a colander, and repeat.
