Celery Salad

Serve as a side

 

I don’t love celery. Actually, I dislike it. But for some reason, I love this celery salad. Weird because the salad is celery plus a little parsley and shallots. Call me crazy. But trust me, this salad is crunchy, refreshing, summery, and tasty.

Ingredients:

 

Ingredients. Plus celery and oil and sherry vinegar. Ooops. Missing half the ingredients!

* Grate the cheese. Much easier to do if you have a cheese grater (I couldn’t find mine…)

thrown

Throw the parsley in together with the celery in the mixing bowl

 

* Make the dressing — shallots, oil and vinegar (and sherry vinegar is not the same thing as sherry wine. Just saying. I ROCKED this recipe with no cheese grater, no parsley at first, and sherry wine instead of vinegar. Blonde moments).
