August 29 is More Herbs, Less Salt Day. Hey, I'm all in flavor (nice pun) of using herbs instead of salt. And I usually do use more herbs than basic salt and pepper seasoning.
I have fresh cilantro and mint in my garden. Last year I had some oregano and it was wonderful when I made homemade spaghetti sauce. So delicious!
