How to Chop Herbs

I've heard this tip from a few different sources now, so I thought I'd share.

If you're using fresh herbs in a dish, don't chop them. Instead, tear them up. When you chop them, you release all of the flavorful oils into the chopping block. However, if you simply tear them into your food, you benefit from all of the flavor of the leaves. Besides, it's easier and quicker.

Bon Appetite!
