by | Updated: December 3rd, 2016

When you’re flavoring your favorite dishes, which seasoning do you reach for most often? In a recent survey conducted by Vitacost.com, basil beat out other popular herbs and spices to earn the title of favorite flavor enhancer. Not far behind, cinnamon, salt and pepper were also popular picks.
