Parsley is featured in many cuisines and used in Tabouli [tabbouleh] on top of fish, on freshly boiled buttery potatoes and in the Italian Gremolata – lemon zest, garlic, parsley. This is also a traditional accompaniment to ossobuco alla milanese (Milanese braised veal shank). Good on pasta, on freshly cooked bright green beans, it’s a beautiful combo of garnish and condiment.
