Crispy Celery Salad

 I love putting celery in most salads and especially chicken salad which are my summer staples.  But I never seem to use up the whole bunch in a couple of days.  I found this recipe and added a new twist to it.  This is a quick simple salad which is light, refreshing and crunchy with a great citrus flavor.

8 ribs of celery, ends trimmed

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (appox. 2 lemons) I add a bit more for a more tangy flavor

2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2oz. shredded fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese or extra cheddar cheese

kosher salt

fresh ground pepper

couple of shakes of Trader’s Joes 21 Seasoning Salute

optional add a bunch of toasted pine nuts

Use a vegetable slicer or slicer in food processor and slice celery very thin. Toss in the oil and lemon juice, add flavoring and cheese as desired.  Toasted pine nuts add some additional crunch…….so delicious.
