"Parsley - the jewel of herbs, both in the pot and on the plate."
-Albert Stockli, Cookbook author
So many of my patients talk about how they are eating healthy because they eat salads. Go and check the bottles of dressing for the amount of fat and calories. If you like salads, great. However, you need to make a few dressings that you love so that you can use more dressing without busting the calorie bank.
This is a variation of a green goddess dressing that I have been making for years. The older one calls for anchovies and makes a LOT of dressing. I wanted to create a version with the Worcestershire sauce because it is easier to use for most people and stores well. This is a great dressing for salads but is perfect on sandwiches as well instead of mayonnaise.
You will find two types of fresh parsley to choose from in most markets—Flat-leaf (or Italian parsley) and curly parsley. Curly parsley is by far the more common, and while both add a bright, fresh taste to recipes, the curly variety has much less flavor than Italian parsley. Look for dark green leaves that have tight curls with no wilting or yellowing.
All parsley remains fresher when kept moist. Rinse the parsley and trim the bottom of the stems. Place the bunch in a glass or small vase like you would a flower arrangement and then place them in the back of the fridge.
The flavor of dried parsley isn't worth the effort to take the bottle off of the shelf at the grocery.
