Ogden Nash was one of my favorite humorous poets, but I disagree with him on some things. Parsley, among them.

Here is a poem he wrote about the wonderful herb:

Further Reflections on Parsley

by Ogden Nash

Is gharsley.

The opposite of gharsley.

See, I disagree with him, there. I like parsley very very much. I chop it and use it fresh, and I dry it for later. I mix it with butter and pour it over boiled new potatoes. I add it to pesto and green smoothies. I use it to make tabouli and couscous salad.

Do you use parsley as anything besides a garnish?
