2 Allspice: The clove-cinnamon-ginger flavor of allspice is an asset to desserts, mulled cider, and savory bean dishes. Dill: A popular herb in Northern and Eastern Europe and Middle Eastern cuisines. The mellow flavor of dill leaves enriches potato dishes, cucumber salads or pickles, yogurt or sour cream dips.

Oregano: The pronounced flavor of oregano is easily recognized as the dominant herb of many commercial pizza sauces. Theres no reason to limit its use to tomato sauce however. Parsley: Fresh parsley is the most readily available herb in American markets.
