Tip of the Day: Cleaning cilantros, mints, basils, and other herbs EZ!

Fill a large bowl with cool water and swirl your herbs around, removing obvious flawed pieces/leaves. If herb is dirty (with sand and dirt), swirl your herbs several times, each time with a clean bowl of water. Then let herb sit in water for 3-5 minutes. Sand, dirt and other debris will settle to bottom of bowl. Swirl herbs once more with a clean bowl of water before chopping or putting in food.
