I have 3 bunches of parsley that didn't get used in my BBQ competition (used to build turn in boxes).  Looking for some ideas to use it up.  I can hardly think of anything I cook that is improved by parsley.  I only use it in chicken soup basically.

I guess I can dry it and save or freeze it all for stock making later.  Other ideas?

Parsley pesto with walnuts, pine nuts, pistachios - whatever you have on hand.  Serve over pasta, etc., etc., etc, or freeze the pesto in ice cube trays.  Throw it into an omelette, soup or whatever you fancy.

Tabouleh with tomatoes, garlic and onion, oilive oil, lemon juice and a grain like bulgur. the main ingredient is parsley. Throw some mint in there too! And sumac if you've got it.

FYI I went with the Parsley oil idea for some of it, I still have a lottt of parsley.

Here is some grilled calamari from my squid fishing adventures last night. The freshest you can get! Scored the squid, marinaded with garlic, parsley, salt, pepper, evoo. Grilled it on the hottest wood fire I could make, topped with some parsley oil, olives with mustard seed, lemon garnish, white wine + best friends

It's hard to think of a dish that wouldn't benefit from a little parsley. Great ideas above so far! I chop and toss into an omelet, mix into any salad or pasta dish. Tabbouleh. Chimichurri or mojo sauce!

How about this unique parsley bread? http://www.culinarytribune.com/?p=35510

I know this doesn't sound all that yummy but a banana/parsley smoothie is quite delicious (well, not when I first started drinking them but I like them now).

One of my favorite comfort food dishes is buttered parslied extra broad egg noodles with a little salt to taste. Serve them on their own or with roast chicken, swedish meatballs, beef stroganoff. I could eat a whole bowl by themselves. Another simple similar dish that sounds tasty is Amish Noodles. (A little too salty for me, but easy to remedy.)

Seriously???

Chopped parsley placed at the end of some dishes, make them brighter tasting and fresh.

Perhaps you have never added chopped parsley to chicken salad, or to a Dijon white wine viniagrette.
