Thanks Cheez Wiz & Nola. I don't know what to say (or do, since this is a first for me).

Since it's Spring & many of us have gardens (and since fresh herbs are readily available in markets these days), how about recipes where fresh herbs (basil, parsley, tarragon, cilantro, rosemary, etc.) are an essential or dominant ingredient. Dips, dressings, sauces, salads - all are welcome.

We can't take complete credit for these, some one from here sent them to us in a secret santa gift several years ago, but they are darn good & have become a part of my holiday food, I don't remember for sure who sent them...maybe Ghenne

Rosemary Roasted Cashews

Ingredients
1 1/4 pounds cashew nuts
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon melted butter
Directions
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Place the nuts on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes until they are warmed through. Meanwhile, combine the rosemary, pepper, sugar, salt and butter in a large bowl. Toss the warm nuts with the rosemary mixture until the nuts are completely coated. Serve warm

Hmmm... I just bought a bunch of fresh herbs* at the Farmers Market today. I'll have to work on coming up with a dish that features one or more of them. :think:

* sage, parsley, tarragon, basil, peppermint

New Cook, I am not really a great consumer of light rum, but we did concoct a basil mojito at the local bar and grill once. They keep a little herb garden for the kitchen. It wasn't bad.

And the winner is...... Repmogirl! The rosemary roasted cashews are a favorite in my home, too. I first tasted them at the S&P BBQ in 2009, thanks to Jackiecat, and have made them & given them as gifts as well. Great recipe!

Take it away, Repmogirl!

(Google "green herb rice")
70% dill and 30% mayo, with capers & caper juice added to taste is good too. :D As is 105%. :lol:
Okay, the dill & mayo might be closer to 50/50, but it needs more dill than mayo. Great on fish, especially salmon, & veggies.

Folks, it looks like the Cookoff threads have run their course, at least for now. I'm working on some plans to direct some new traffic in here, but until then unless I get a massive opinion to the contrary, I think we'll put the Cookoffs on simmer for a while.

So, I've been to Nebraska for the last 10 days... limited internet

Do I need to pick an ingredient or not?

Now that you're back and have seen this, I'm going to archive it. Maybe we'll bring back the cookoffs this fall! No need to pick for now.
