Fresh Herbs for Healthy Meals and Salads
Thyme, Parsley, Sage, Lemon Balm and Tarragon make a healthy difference to a meal.
Last night I put together a healthy and simple salad to take over to friends for dinner, which not only tasted delicious, but looked very attractive as well, because of the addition of herbs growing in my garden. I added thyme leaves, chopped parsley, finely chopped tarragon, and the yellow tarragon flowers sprinkled across the top gave it a very festive appearance and were edible. It was so easy and drew lots of appreciative comments.
Fresh herbs are so easy to grow, are a great companion crop for the vegetables, and are very economical, stretching the budget.
Fresh Sage is also a winner for beef casseroles and roast chicken stuffing and grows so well near your citrus or with the vegetables. So rewarding, give it a try.
