Learn how to chop parsley properly in just 20 seconds (watch the video above). Remember, you don't chop parsley the same way as you do other herbs.

Step-by-step guide: how to chop parsley


1. Gently scrape your bunch of parsley with a large knife to loosen individual stems. Gather in a loose pile.
