Ingredients

How to make it

  • If you have old tough celery, de-string the ribs.
  • Slice fairly thin on the diagonal because it looks prettier.
  • Soak in ice water for at least 20 minutes.
  • Whisk lemon & lime juice with the dijon mustard and shallot, stream in olive oil and whisk away til combined. Add a touch more oil if you think it is too tart.
  • Season with a sprinkle of kosher salt and lots of cracked black pepper.
  • Toss part of the dressing with the soft lettuce leaves
  • Toss remaining dressing with the celery.
  • Put lettuce on plate, top with celery.
  • Garnish top with a sprinkle of chopped capers and shavings of cheese.
  • Alternately, I have chopped up some green pimento stuffed olives and added them to the celery when I was short on capers and I like it nearly as well.

    Wow! I just bought a gorgeous bunch of organic celery from the farmers' market - dark, dark green, very stringy but with a sharp, deep celery flavor and scent that blows my mind. Came here looking for a recipe that would treat it as the starring lead character it deserves to be, and I can't wait to try this beautiful dish. I don't even mind the stringing! Thanks for posting. EDIT - I just made this dish, it's delicious beyond belief! Looks like you can't add stars when you edit a comment, so I'll post a new one.

    This was a big hit at a supper I had with the girls, and then I also took it to a family picnic. Big hit. Both times I used the dressing on a chopped salad. Great recipe.
