Note: Parsley is much more than a garnish to be thrown on a plate. Parsley is a good source of vitamin C and vitamin A. Parsley is also a good source of folic acid, which is important for a healthy heart. When ever possible use fresh parsley instead of dried parsley flakes. When shopping for parsley it should be fresh, crisp, and a dark green color. If you grow your own parsley you can chop it and freeze in freezer storage bags.
