Cooking with fresh herbs adds so much to a dish but often we don’t use an entire bunch for any given recipe. To get the maximum life from your fresh herbs store in fresh water in refrigerator after washing.

    • Hi Karen, I don’t think I’ve ever had gazpacho – I’ll have to try. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Hi Debbie – I have the worst time growing cilantro. I have probably killed 6 plants already this year! I need to get some going, because our tomatoes are starting to come in. Thanks so much for sharing with the Let’s Get Real party.
