Parsley Lover’s Cucumber Salad

Parsley and Cucumber Salad

When I was living down in New Orleans, I faithfully ate from food trucks since they were camped right outside my office building all day long. And like the rest of the food in New Orleans, the food from these trucks was absolutely delicious. One truck in particular, The Fat Falafel, shared an incredible parsley salad that I couldn’t get enough of. In this recipe, I replicated that salad to the best of my abilities. And boy is it good.

Using just four ingredients, this salad is sweet with just enough kick from the vinegar. I have to warn you though, this salad is for serious parsley lovers, as the main leafy ingredient is Italian parsley.
