For breakfast, we love it with soft pita bread and a glass of fresh orange juice. It gives us good energy for our day, strengthens our bones, and stimulates our brain.
For dinner, you can have it with a cup of warm milk for a good restful sleep. For Lunch, it does well as a side fish for a vegetarian main dish.
What is lovely with this salad is that it can also do well for picnics. In that case, you can have the salad ready in an airtight container, and mix in the lemon juice and olive oil only at the picnic.
Parsley has many health benefits. It is known to boost the Immune System, detoxifies the body, and supports the health of the bones.
The recipe is very easy. We use poached potatoes and eggs, mash them roughly and mix them with fresh parsley and spring onion. We season it all with Salt and Pepper, a little lemon juice, and extra-virgin olive oil.
The potatoes must be washed well, and boiled with the skin to maintain their taste. For this recipe, use the yellow Yukon potatoes, which are softer to mash.
