When I was younger I hated celery, of all things.

As the perfect vessel for things like peanut butter, cream cheese, or French onion dip, celery is such an odd vegetable to hate on. But I wouldn’t have been caught dead munching a celery stick…not even along with a chicken wing and blue cheese for dipping.

Since then I’ve changed my crazy ways and learned to appreciate celery, not only for its ability to serve as a vessel for other yummy foods, but also for its crunch factor. And I love the fact that it’s a little bit like both chicken and tofu in that it absorbs the flavors around it.

Blue Cheese makes this salad!

This salad features the crunch I love about celery, along with the flavor of creamy blue cheese dressing that’s laced with a subtle spiciness. It is wonderful, addictive even, and will have you wondering whether or not you ever want to use cabbage or broccoli stalks for slaw again (and yes, I love both of them too). Make it and you’ll be hard-pressed not to eat the entire batch. By yourself, before dinner.
