Parsley, Curly

Parsley, Curly

Parsley, Curly

We have not found  much difference between the flavors of curly and straight parsley.  We generally buy whichever is fresher and less expensive; however, this curly variety is more decorative, if that is a factor.  Select crisp bunches (not wilted) with a bright green color.  We eat curly parsley raw in our salads, in our raw vegetable smoothies, or cooked in various dishes for added flavor.  See the nutritional chart below.
