Cook with fresh herbs this summer

shaw-push-component

It’s time to get planting! Pick up some fresh herbs to plant and keep near the kitchen so you can snip and cook as needed. Keep them in pots as some like to spread and take over if allowed.

The following herbs are some of my favorites! They are hardy, flavorful, and will go with lots of delicious summer recipes.

Cilantro - Use fresh cilantro in tacos, fajitas, homemade salsas, corn and black bean salads.  

Basil – Basil is delicious with tomatoes from your garden. Sprinkle on slices of tomato and fresh mozzarella, and drizzle with Balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Basil tastes great in most Italian dishes including homemade pizzas, pastas, and pasta salads.

Oregano – Oregano tastes great on homemade pizzas, pastas, and pasta salads. You can also sprinkle on roasted or sautéed vegetables.

Mint – I love mint. It tastes delicious in summer fruit salads with melon and berries. It also tastes great as a garnish on desserts with fruit or chocolate. I also like to put mint in grain-based salads like tabouleh.Mint leaves can also be used to add flavor to summer beverages and drinks.
