Chef Seamus Mullen shares this tasty and healthy recipe from his book, Hero Food.

A parsley vinaigrette is a terrifically versatile thing. It works with all sorts of salads — from potato to bean salads — but it's also great on a sautéed piece of fish or drizzled over grilled meats and vegetables. All hail lord parsley!

This is not a juice in the true sense of the word; it's really more of a smoothie. I prefer using a Vitamix to make green drinks rather than using a juicer because it keeps all of the nutrients and fiber of the vegetable and just processes it so that it's easier for the body to break down rather than extracting just the juice and discarding the fiber. When I'm having a lot of pain in my hands, which unfortunately is quite frequently, this really helps me. The folic acid in the parsley clears out the uric acid in my joints which causes the pain.
