According to Amanda Cohen, the brilliant chef-owner of the vegetable-centric restaurant Dirt Candy in New York City, we should all be paying more attention to parsley. This “salt of the vegetable kingdom” has become Cohen’s go-to flavor enhancer for all kinds of dishes. Parsley is “the underwear of my kitchen: I wouldn’t dream of going anywhere without it,” she says.

From popcorn to cocktails, here are five fantastic ways to use the versatile herb.

1. Garlic-Parsley Butter Popcorn

2. Parsley Salad
Upgrade the classic green salad by using curly parsley instead of lettuce.

3. Grilled Brats and Onions with Parsley Sauce

4. Parsley-Mint Tabbouleh

5. Parsley Gin Julep
