The parsley symbolizes the humble origins of the Israelites.

The salt water symbolizes the tears shed during our slavery in Egypt.

Dip a piece of Parsley in the salt water and recite this blessing before eating,

Blessed are You, O Lord our God, King of the Universe, who creates the fruit of the earth.

Baruch Atah Adonai Elo-heinu Melech Haolam Boreh Pree Ha’adamah.
