I bought the ingredients the day before I needed them.The morning of the potluck I prepped everything and mixed it together. After I put the salad into a bowl I wanted to add a sprig of parsley on top for decoration. When I took a good look at the extra stems, I realized they were pretty sad looking. Fortunately I knew a solution.
I got out a deep coffee mug, put a couple of inches of water in the bottom, and placed the parsley stems in like a bouquet of flowers. Two hours later they had revived enough that I was able to get my sprig, but 24 hours later the stems were looking pretty perky.
