Herb Scissors




I asked for herb scissors for Christmas and Santa delivered!
I just KNEW I was on the Nice List! ha.
I used them for the first time yesterday
when I was fixing up a little lunch to feed my
Mexican craving!

    1. I had not heard of them either and saw them on Pinterest a couple of weeks before Christmas! Pretty cool...just two or three snips and you have a pile of perfectly chopped pieces! And they go in the dishwasher...very nice.

    1. I was telling Keith about them and of course he had heard about them already and has some! But he's the chef and I'm not. haha.

    2. Well, I think they do an absolutely wizard job on the herbs, just how I like 'em, not chopped into a million pieces with a knife. I first encountered those scissors at the cookery school when I was in Paris. Thought I MUST have a pair no matter what the cost!

      Pretty please, can you email me the recipe, or the contents, of that delicious looking salad? I'm need a few new ideas. My "Salade Niçoise" is getting a bit boring nowadays.

    3. They are cool, aren't they? So easy and I like the little strips just like you said.

      Yes, I'll email it to you..although I just layers things in a bowl to dip my chips in...but I'll tell you about it. Do you like spicy?

  4. Those scissors are also handy for shredding sensitive documents and removing your address from envelopes etc before putting them in the recycling bin.

  8. I can see where those multiple blades would make fast work of chopping herbs.

  9. That makes rolling my cilantro into a ball and chopping it up with a big knife no fun at all.
    I think maybe I'll go buy some more dried red chile pods.

    1. That's how I've always done it...or just used regular scissors, which takes a while!

    2. Me too. I was watching Ireland MasterChef the other day and the entire back
      window of the studio, is all herbs. All kinds. Brilliant idea. Just to line the
      entire sunny window.

    3. My window sills aren't deep enough for pots. Boo! One of the things I wish I had that this house doesn't provide!
