Its Halloween tommorrow, so we wanted to share a fun and easy appetizer, perfect for sharing with everyone answering the door, or as a yummy snack after an evening of trick-or-treating!
Sure, Parsley makes a good garnish. We’ve all seen the little sprig adorning the side of the plate, but did you know how good PARSLEY is for you?
Parsley is a strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. When consumed regularly, it can combat the onset of many disorders. The vitamin C and vitamin A found in it serve to strengthen the body’s immune system. It is also an excellent source of vitamins A, B, C, E and K. So instead of just salt and pepper, sprinkle 2 tablespoons of Parsley on your meal for a tasty healthy change.
