*Chiffonade is a cooking technique in which herbs or leafy green are cut into long, thin strips. This is accomplished by stacking leaves, rolling them tightly, then cutting across the rolled leaves with a sharp knife, producing fine ribbons. “Chiffon” is French for “little rag” referring to the fabric-like strips that result from this technique. To Chiffonade simply means to turn into rag-like strips.
