I just read an article about the health benefits of fresh parley and I was blown away! Here are a few reasons a sprinkle of it can not only add a nice flavor to your meals but also benefit your body!
It’s full of:
- Healthy Immune System
- Healthy Heart
- Vitamin K
I grow both flat-leaf and curly parsley in my garden. In fact, year after year they grow back all by themselves; making them a great, cheap investment! I think it always goes well with pasta and is a tomato’s best friend. Even if you don’t have it out back in your garden, you can always pick it up at your grocery store and experiment with it. I promise, it won’t let you down!
In our house, we like to eat it simply tossed into a salad or vinaigrette. Here is a delicious parsley vinaigrette recipe that is so good! Try it!
- 2 garlic cloves, smashed
- ¼ tsp. salt
- 3 tbs. red-wine vinegar
- 6 tbs. olive oil
- 3 tbs. fresh parsley, chopped
- Crush garlic cloves.
- Using a fork, mash garlic with salt to form a paste.
- Add red-wine vinegar and stir.
- Whisk in olive oil.
- Add chopped parsley and stir to combine.
- Toss with salad greens and enjoy!
