Interestingly, historically the Greeks had a deep and abiding affinity for parsley. They believed that the god Hercules chose parsley as his staple ingredient for his garlands. As a result of this belief, the Greeks used parsley in their woven crowns for the victors of their athletic games in tribute and reverence. In addition, the Greeks heralded parsley as a very important medicinal herb.
