Tips

In the store, look for Italian parsley that has vibrant green leaves and firm stems.

For maximum freshness, Italian parsley should be stored in the refrigerator in a zip pouch or wrapped in a slightly damp paper towel. If the Italian parsley is slightly wilted, sprinkle it lightly with water and without completely drying, store in the refrigerator.

Prior to consumption, wash Italian parsley thoroughly in cold water to remove dirt and dust. Pat dry to remove excess moisture.

Nutrition

Italian parsley is rich in vitamins and minerals, particularly vitamins A and C.
