Parsley is the most commonly cooked with herb in the United States. Dried parsley is quite light, and is used to bring both a clean, fresh flavor and aroma to recipes that you don't necessarily get from other herbs. When substituting dried parsley for fresh, use about 1/3 of the amount of parsley that the recipe calls for. Dried parsley flakes are perfect for garnishing your favorite soups and sauces, or for seasoning salads, meats or vegetables.
