help...i need a celery recipe STAT

Postby Guest on Fri Jul 13, 2007 2:45 pm

Somehow I ended up with 2 big bunches of celery in my grocery order :shock: and I feel weird about returning one.

So...are there any yummy celery recipe ideas out there that would use up a good chunk of the overabundance?

Thanks :)

Celery Salad
40 min 20 min prep

12 celery ribs, thinly sliced crosswise
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 head red leaf lettuce, torn
4 ounces pecorino cheese
kosher salt
fresh pepper

Fill a medium bowl with cold water and about 2 cups of small ice cubes. Add sliced celery and let it soak in the ice water bath for at least 10 minutes or for up to 30 minutes, until very crisp.
Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, whisk the olive oil with the lemon juice. Stir in the finely choped shallot. Season with salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, toss the lettuce with 3 T of the dressing. Transfer lettuce to plates or a platter.
Drain the sliced celery and pat dry thoroughly with paper towels. Add the celery to the large bowl and toss with the remaining dressing. Season the dressed celery with salt and pepper.
Using a slotted spoon, scatter the dliced celery over the lettuce.
Using a very sharp vegetable peeler, shave long strips of the pecorino cheese over the salad. Drizzle with the remaining dressing and serve.

This one doesn't use a lot of celery, but I loooooooooooove it!
BROCCOLI GRAPE SALAD

1 head broccoli, cut stems and tops in small pieces
1 c. celery, finely chopped

1 c. green grapes
1 c. red grapes

1/2 c. bacon (about 8 slices), cooked and crumble the bacon
1 c. toasted slivered almonds, can use sunflower seeds, also

DRESSING:
Mix all together. Pour and toss salad. Chill about 2 to 4 hours before serving.

1 c. mayonnaise
1 tbsp. vinegar
1/2 c. sugar

I really like to fill a stalk of celery with sandwich fillings such as chicken salad, egg salad or tuna salad - YUM!

You can also make 'Bumps On A Log' which is peanut butter spread onto a stalk of celery then press raisins on top.
