About half a teaspoon of dried for 1 teaspoon of fresh, but I go mostly by taste or looks…

When cooking with herbs, there is a general rule of thumb to keep in mind regarding the ratio of fresh to dry: Because dried herbs are often more potent and concentrated than fresh herbs, you need less.

When cooking, it's always easier to add more flavor than it is to take it away, so taste as you go to make sure the dish is properly seasoned.

Dried herbs have a much more concentrated flavor, so the general rule of thumb is to use a third of the amount of dried as you would fresh herbs. Often a recipe will call for chopped fresh herbs in units of tablespoons. Since one tablespoon is equal to three teaspoons, use one teaspoon chopped dried herbs instead.

To the best of my knowledge, 1 teaspoon of dried parsley equals 1 tablespoon of fresh.

1 tsp of dried would be a lot more than 1 tsp of fresh, because when it dries it gets a lot smaller.
