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

* one bunch of celery, chopped

* one shallot, diced

* some parsley

* 1/4 cup of grated cheese (aged gouda)

* 1 tablespoon of sherry vinegar

* 1 tablespoon of olive oil

* salt and pepper to taste.




* chop the celery. THIS TAKES FOREVER.



Super boring


Put the celery in a bowl

* Chop / dice the shallot and the parsley.





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

My mess of grating cheese with just a knife.




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).
