How to improve your salads — add parsley

September 26, 2015 at 8:32 pm (Fall recipes, Salads, Spring recipes, Winter recipes)


When my mom was here a few weeks ago she made an excellent parsley salad. It was made from parsley leaves (lots!), grated carrots, red onions, and a simple lemon dressing. Then she added roasted pepitas, which are optional. Delicious. I’ve never been a big fan of taboulleh, so I didn’t realize how tasty a simple parsley salad could be.

My mom had more parsley leftover after making two parsley salads, and so just threw it into a regular green salad. Sooo good. I really miss having a variety of green leafy vegetables available, and so adding parsley to salads is a great way to get more dark green vegetables into my diet. Plus it’s cheap and delicious. I highly recommend it.

    I haven’t added parsley to non middle eastern salads before, but I often add it to soup.

    Real tabouleh is made with fresh parsley in a proportion of 3 bunches of parsley to a cup of bulgur.
