Summer Celery Salad

Celery is totally underrated. Especially the leaves! Why oh why do grocers cut them off??? When I buy celery I dig through the bags looking for the ones with the most leaves and tender centers. I love the center whitish areas. So delicious. This salad celebrates the celery and a nice tang. Perfect for a hot day's lunch. 

Note: this salad is perfect to pre-chop and take to lunch since it can last days chopped without getting icky. It doesn't usually last longer than a day or so however.


makes one serving for lunch portion


  • 3 stalks celery with leaves
  • sliced red onion
  • 5-8 quartered cherry tomatos
  • 1/2 avocado cubed
  • 2 tbs herb vinagrette 
  • crumbled fresh feta


Chop your celery stalk and remove the leaves. Slice your red onion really thinly. Amount of red onion is up to you. I like mine with a good 1/4 of a red onion. Add to bowl with quartered cherry tomatoes and avocado cubes. Toss with a herb vinaigrette (see heirloom tomato salad) or you can chop your favorite herbs finely and add to lemon juice and olive oil with a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss salad and crumble feta on top.
