What are some good things I can make (besides green smoothies) using parsley?
Also, what are some yummy fruits that I can blend up with parsley in a green smoothie? I know that I can add just about anything my heart desires, but before I waste perfectly good produce on a funky combination, I thought I'd get some suggestions from you wonderful people. :)
Dara, who loves parsley :D

I've really enjoyed it in a smoothie with mango and banana.
I think Alissa's falafel recipe also uses a fair amount of parsley.

I LOVE parsley in my smoothies - and pineapple works very well with it. I generally do a banana-apple-pineapple-parsley blend (along with some of Alissa's green powder for extra greens and stuff as well as spiruliina) and I love it!
As for other stuff, I really don't use it for all that much - I put it in marinara/spaghetti sauce and I may use it in the place of cilantro in some recipes as I don't like cilantro.

parsley is good with mango in a smoothie. Another good recipe is finely chopped parsley, cilantro, green onion, a little bit of finely chopped basil, chopped tomato, juice of 1/2 lemon, dash of olive oil, teaspoon of honey, some almonds finely crushed, a little hot pepper, salt/pepper and/or any spices you like. It's Storm & Jinjee's tabouli recipe. SO GOOD.

Thanks for the suggestions.
Rawkinlocs: I actually don't like cilantro either and never thought about substituting parsley for it. Great suggestion!
Since the general consensus is that parsley is good with MANGO, I'm going to make a BANANA and MANGO (bought frozen mango today!) smoothie c my PARSLEY tonight. I always have a problem figuring out how much of each thing to put in though. Help?

2 apples (love granny smith) or 1 apple and 1 pear
1 lemon, juiced
1/2 cup parsley
2 T olive oil
tastes awesome and, if used for your nighttime meal, will also help cleanse your liver.

I like to juice my parsley with carrots. :D

oooh! you definately have to make tabouli with parsley!
mince a bunch of parsley
add chopped tomato, cucumber, red onion, green pepper, hemp seeds
dressing: olive oil, lemon juice, and sea salt.
this is super fresh and yummy!
