What to do with too much Parsley?

Here is a recipe from the garden :)

Parsley salad is healthy and oh, so good!



Use more or less, add or leave off, you can't go wrong with parsley salad.

I like bulgur but I love quinoa, so that's what i use. I add 1 cup quinoa as a light main course with chick peas or grilled chicken,  and less if served as appetizer.

You may add minced garlic or hot pepper flakes, or instead of the onions try chopped green onions.


here is how I like mine:

2 bunches parsley, I prefer Italian flat leafed parsley
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
2 medium-sized tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/2 sweet onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup Meyer lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup cooked quinoa


1) cook 1/2 cup quinoa in 1 cup water for 10 minutes or until done.
2) chop parsley and mint.
3) in large bowl mix quinoa, tomatoes, onions, lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper.
4) add parsley and mint, mix well.

Bon App├ętit
