Nearly EVERYONE loves fresh basil!! Whether made into a pesto or just sprinkled over fresh-made bruschetta, its flavor can’t be beat! In order to get the best flavor and avoid bruising, always use a sharp knife and chiffonade the leaves. You might be asking, Chiffon-what?
Chiffonade is a classic knife cut used for large-leaved herbs like basil, mint, and sage, and leafy greens such as spinach, kale, and Swiss chard. This quick video will show you how! Happy Chopping! Enjoy!
