Recently I was talking to my trainer about cooking with fresh herbs. I mentioned how much I love Herb Scissors, and was surprised she had never heard of them. And these Herb Scissors are absolutely one of my top five most-loved kitchen tools and it’s fresh herb season, so I decided I need to remind my readers about them!

If you’re cooking with fresh herbs, you’ll love these scissors that make chopping herbs so quick and easy! And I especially love the thin strips of fresh basil I can get by using them..

I love learning things from my readers, and I found out about this now-beloved kitchen tool in a discussion on the Kalyn’s Kitchen Facebook page. I’m such a fresh-herb lover that I immediately went to Amazon.com and bought some Herb Scissors (affiliate link), and I’ve been enthusiastically using them ever since! I found a variety of brands of scissors at Amazon.com, but I picked RSVP Herb Scissors, partly because they had a cover to use for storing the scissors.

How have I used herb scissors?

I’ve mostly used my scissors for mint and basil, but they’d also be perfect for making strips of sage or quickly chopping things like parsley, oregano, tarragon. I snip the herbs from the stem and wash them and spin dry in a Mini Salad and Herb Spinner (affiliate link). Then I stack up the leaves and cut into strips. My nephew Jake is famous for his knife skills, but even he was impressed with how fast you could make strips of basil with the herb scissors.

See how I’ve used the scissors to snip fresh basil:

I’ve snipped fresh basil into strips with herb scissors for dishes like Three Cheese Tomato-Basil Quiche, Crustless Tomato-Basil Breakfast Tarts, Chicken Salad with Basil, Cauliflower Rice with Basil, Parmesan, and Pine Nuts, Green Bean and Tomato Salad, Cucumber Noodle Salad with Shrimp, Ratatouille Stew with Italian Sausage and the ever-popular Easy Cheesy Zucchini Bake.

See how I’ve used the scissors to snip fresh mint:

I’ve also snipped mint for Cucumber Avocado Salad with Chickpeas and Feta, Thai-Inspired Turkey Larb Salad, Thai Turkey Lettuce Wraps.  I have no doubt that the herb scissors are something I’m going to be using for years.
