Celery is one of those vegetables that is often ignored. It goes into wintery vegetable stews, into stocks as they brew on the stove, and into the juicer. Occasionally a stick is munched quite loudly as one wanders around the kitchen wondering what else there is to eat. But rarely, rarely is it used in other ways.

These simple ways of eating celery will make you fall in love with the humble vegetable again.

For both of these you will need good quality crisp celery.

Salted Celery Sticks

Take the more tender inner sticks of celery (reserve for other salads) and remove the leaves. Chop the rest into manageable sized sticks, and sprinkle with a good sea salt. I use Celtic Sea Salt. Serve as a snack, antipasto or accompaniment to other dishes.

Simplest of Celery Salads

Chop sticks of celery into tiny slices. You can use any of the sticks except the dark green ones – these are better for stocks or braises. Sprinkle a little good quality vinegar over the chopped sticks, and then drizzle with wonderful extra virgin olive oil. A little salt is good, and I like a tiny pinch or two of sugar as well.

You will love how the celery glistens with the oil. Allow to sit for 10 minutes if you can, and then serve. Wonderful!

Fall in love with celery again. Enjoy!
