Flat-leaved parsleys like "Giant From Italy" parsley are used in stocks, soups, and sauces. Parsley mixed with chopped garlic yields a mixure called persillade, common in French cuisine.
You can mix parsley, capers, anchoives, gardlic, and bread to create an dItalian salsa verde to serve with fish or chop parsley with scallions for a Brazilian cheiro-verde.
Chopped parsley is also a key ingredient in Middle Easter salads such as tabbouleh.

Ratings & Reviews
I love everything about this parsley.
I love this variety of parsley for its interesting leaves, flavor, and beauty in a planter box.
A biannual in zone 5
Wonderful intense flavor, holds its texture well during cooking. Added benefit it is biannual in zone 5, which means fresh parsley in the garden early in the spring when not much else is ready for harvest yet. It will go to bloom later in the second season though.
