Refreshingly simple. Incredibly healthy. Totally delicious. Parsley-mint salad as a side to all your heavy meals.
The World’s Smallest Salad Recipe
I believe this is the world’s shortest recipe. Don’t blink or you will miss it. In spite of its small stature, it packs a powerful punch. Not only is this parsley-mint salad refreshingly cleansing (it makes a great palette cleanser as well as digestive aide), but it is loaded with powerful antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Rich in Vitamin K and calcium for bone and blood health, which greens are known for, as well as aiding in digestion and masking bad breath. You can’t go wrong with this little side salad.
In our home, I prepare this salad whenever we have a heavy meal. Interestingly, parsley and mint are known for helping aid in digestion, plus the cleansing flavor breaks up the heaviness of any meal. Truthfully, preparing parsley-mint salad seems too simple to be tasty, but it truly is a delicious side to any meal.
Recipe for Parsley-Mint Salad
- 2 bunches of fresh, flat-leaf or curly parsley, chopped
- 1 bunch of fresh mint, chopped
- 1 lemon, juiced (about 1 Tablespoon juice)
- 3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- sea salt and pepper to taste
If You Want to Take It Up a Notch
Parsley-Mint Salad is totally good on its own, but if you want to take it up a notch, and have been looking for more ways to incorporate preserved lemons into your recipes, then here is your chance. Preserved Lemons add a salty, lemony kick that is not only refreshing, but adds a nice citrusy bite. Seriously, I can’t find enough ways to incorporate them into my favorite recipes. If you have not made them, check out my post on Preserved Lemons and jump into what may soon be one of your favorite condiments as well.
Toss together, serve, and enJOY!
