At this point in the seder, it is traditional to eat parsely dipped in salt water. Parsley represents rebirth, renewal and growth; the salt water represents the tears of enslavement.

Baruch atah, Adonai, eloheinu ruach ha’olam, borei p’ri ha’adamah.

Blessed are you, Adonai, Breath of Life, creator of the fruit of the earth.

Everyone eats parsley dipped into salt water.
