Celery Salad

I love finding new salad recipes to try. They are such a great side dish and usually offer a refreshing crunch to the meal. I tore this recipe out of a Cooking Light magazine a few years ago and finally tried it recently with a couple of minor adaptations. So nice to have something new to do with celery!

Celery Salad

5 cups thinly sliced celery
3/4 cup finely diced parmesan cheese {I have used shredded, but diced creates a much better flavor!}
1/2 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped and toasted
1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil {I used organic cold-pressed}
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice {or bottled organic}
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt {or sea salt}

Combine ingredients in a large serving bowl and toss well. Serve shortly after mixing as ingredients will start to dry out after a while. About 8 servings - can also cut recipe in half.

My hubs is not a big celery fan and he even likes the flavors in this salad! Do you have a favorite salad?
