Does anyone have any suggestions? I use a big knife and a cutting board for chopping the leaves, but that always leaves a big mess. I put the leaves into a bowl, and then I have to wash out the bowl and there are little bits of leaf that end up all over the place. I use a sponge to wash the bowl and bits get on the sponge, and then I am trying to clean out the sponge. Such a nuisance, but I love cilantro and parsley. Is there an easier way, with less clean up?

YouTube is great for learning this kind of skill. Check out these videos:<br><br><a href="http://youtu.be/6NqFiLGWMKE" target="_blank">http://youtu.be/6NqFiLGWMKE</a><br><br>
There are a ton of other videos on this subject. Just search "How to chop herbs" or "How to chop parsley".

I pretty much do it the way you do, haha. Usually in a plate, though. Then I sweep it up with my hands and then spend a good few minutes trying to fling it off into whatever I'm cooking. Yeah... The Food Network's on the phone right now, they want to give me a cooking show. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

After looking at the videos I think part of my problem is that the leaves are still kind of wet from washing when I go to chop them and that's why they stick to everything.<br><br>
Thanks everyone

Chop with scissors. Directly into what you're using it in.</div>
