Have the Perfect Summer Picnic with Parsley Potato Salad

| 7/26/2011 10:10:08 AM

S.McCabeIn the heat of the summer, potato salad is a staple with my family. We love to try new recipes on the weekends, and when we found this recipe for Parsley Potato Salad with Turkey Bacon, we couldn’t pass it up.

Amazingly enough, parsley has more vitamin C than any other culinary vegetable. It also contains substantial amounts of iron—twice as much as the superfood powerhouse spinach. And that’s not all. Parsley is a rich source for calcium, folic acid, manganese, potassium, vitamin A and antioxidants.

Raw parsley is known for its ability to cleanse the blood as well as protect against heart disease and rheumatoid arthritis. It helps to remove kidney and gallstones, it can treat ear infections, and it increases sex drive and endurance. You can reduce swelling by crushing the leaves into a poultice and applying it to the bruise. It even freshens your breath if you chew it after a meal.

So take advantage of all parsley has to offer with this delicious potato salad from Weight Watchers All Time Favorites (Wiley, 2007). I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
