    Default Thanks Cheri!

    I made the celery salad but not exactly right. I was in a hurry so just did
    plain slices. And I forgot to buy fresh parsley so I mixed some dried into
    the dressing. I only bought two lemons but they were huge. I didn't
    measure the juice or the oil. Just eyeballed it but I wound up with more
    juice to oil and too much dressing for the amount of celery I had. But it
    was VERY good. Both Angela and I loved it. Husband though was being a big
    old doo doo head and refused to even try it. Fine! More for us then.
    Angela had the cheese on hers and I only had the walnuts. Probably
    shouldn't have eaten it though because now my stomach is feeling a bit
    uncertain but... It's very hot here (well for here) today so that was good
    to have for dinner.

    YW, I was pleasantly surprised myself when I saw Ina making it. I just
    didn't really think of celery as a stand alone salad, and one thing I do
    like about it is that celery does stay crisp for a few days so not a huge
    hurry to use it. I wash and clean the celery then stand it upright in a
    container in the fridge, but it stays nice in the crisper too, of just on
    the shelf for that matter.

    I miss the celery hearts that I enjoyed so much as a kid. Celery these
    days comes with it shorn off.

    We can get it here, actually it is the way most shops sell celery. Some
    also sell single sticks by the kilo. The heart and leaves I use in
    soups.

    You can still buy the hearts here but they are my least favorite part.
