Rach's answer: "[With] fresh herbs, [use] one tablespoon or your whole palm. I never measure anything. Marcella Hazan said it best. She said, 'Measuring to a cook is like putting a bird in a cage.' One scant palmful of fresh when you can find it and one teaspoon of dried is the equivalent."
Got that? 1 tablespoon or a scant palmful of fresh herbs = one teaspoon of dried herbs.
