I have used lemon balm leaves to rub round a salad bowl before putting in the salad. I've also used them as a chiffonade added to fruit salads,

Purple sage I use interchangeably with normal green sage.

Any of them would be good to use as a mop to put butter, olive oil or your own mixture on grilling meats.

The lemon balm and lemon mint both make great panna cottas. I also agree with Claire's usage for Southeast Asian foods, especially Thai and Vietnamese type dishes.

I'm not a big fan or user of sage in general, but I guess I would also use it in place of regular sage.

Oh Jen, time to have some fun!! You gotten so many wonderful ideas, I hope I'm not repeating anyone - I love Sage!!

someone did beat me to fried sage leaves for garnish.

I love making Butternut Squash, Goat Cheese and Sage Ravioli with Hazelnut Sage Butter, it's great used in breakfast sausages, also I add it to the top of my three cheese (Fontina, Gorgonzola & Parmigiano-Reggiano) pizza!!

I'll leave the others to others...
