Parsley is known as the ubiquitous herb, and it makes a frequent appearance for good reason -- it helps evoke flavor from other herbs, so it's often used in combination with a variety of seasonings to boost pungency. Retaining a beautiful, bright, verdant color and a grassy, fresh and mellow flavor, parsley is more than just a pretty garnish. Mix up a red potato salad with parsley, or try using it as a fun alternative to basil in a pesto sauce that can also be made with walnuts. Assemble a herb crust for salmon or use dried parsley in a rub for roasted chicken. When cooking with heat, add a little dried parsley at the last minute to coax even more aroma from the dish.
