Does it keep? 2-3 Days


  • 1 large bundle fresh parsley (~4-5 cups as original recipe is written // chopped // curly, not Italian // organic when possible)
  • 1/3 cup red onion (diced)
  • 1 large red bell pepper (diced // or sub cherry tomatoes // organic when possible)
  • 1 medium lemon, juiced (~3 Tbsp or 45 ml as original recipe is written)
  • 1-2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil (optional if avoiding oil)
  • 1 pinch each sea salt and black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp hulled hemp seeds (optional)


  1. To a large mixing bowl, add parsley, onion, and bell pepper. Top with lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper and toss to combine. Add hemp seeds at this time if desired (optional).
  2. Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more lemon juice for acidity, salt and pepper for overall flavor, or olive oil if too dry.
  3. Serve immediately as a side for Mediterranean dishes like Mediterranean Baked Sweet Potatoes, Chickpea Shawarma Dip, or Chickpea Shawarma Sandwiches. This is also great as a salad base for things like Crispy Baked Chickpeas.


*Nutrition information is a rough estimate calculated with lesser amount of oil and without hemp seeds.
