    1. Lisa, I’m not familiar with the herb either. But, I thought the juxtaposition between the saffron colored leaves and the green dill, might taste wonderful. Here’s what Penzeys says about Mural of Flavor: “Blends over a dozen spices and herbs, creating a wall (hence mural) of flavor so delicious, there’s no need to add salt. Inspired by the rich and mouth-watering flavors of the western Mediterranean, Mural of Flavor is wonderfully versatile. Try it on chicken, fish, pork and beef. Add it to soups, rice and potatoes. Shake it over sliced tomatoes, corn, popcorn and scrambled eggs.” It sounds lovely.
