Crisp Celery Salad Recipe-10726

Photo by: Joseph De Leo
Comments: 0


Celery has that crisp snap that you get from pickles, but it is more subtle and acts as a counterpoint to stronger flavors. Here celery is dressed with a simple vinaigrette and fresh herbs and it remains crunchy even the next day. Try serving it atop thinly sliced roasted beets.


  • 12 outer ribs celery, trimmed and thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • 6 to 8 inner ribs celery, including the leaves, chopped
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper; to taste
  • ½ cup small flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped fresh mint


Place all the celery in a bowl. Add the olive oil and vinegar and toss. Season with salt and pepper. Just before serving, toss with the parsley leaves and chopped mint.
