There are two varieties - flat leaf Italian Parsley and the curly parsley we all know as 'garnish'. The flat leaf variety is less bitter and more fragrant. If you cannot find flat leaf, curly parsley will also work here.
I discovered this tasty salad on Vibrant Nutrition. This salad goes well with grilled meats (neutralize that grill smoke!), chicken, pork, clams, and fish as well as Moroccan and Middle Eastern cuisine, when it is often served as a accompaniment to meals for it's cooling effect on hot days.
(serves 4 as a main salad, or 6 as a small accompaniment)
