Parsley Salad Dressing

Parsley on cutting board

Filled with vitamin-rich parsley, this herbal salad dressing is good on green salads as well as on steamed vegetables like cauliflower, potatoes, and squashes. I’m not sure why so many places sell such big bunches of herbs like parsley; they’re perishability makes it hard to use them up before they start losing their freshness. This dressing, which can be made oil-free if you prefer, is a great solution. Thanks to Progressive International for the cool-looking salad dressing shaker shown in the photo below!
