Celery is all the craze right now. Not sure if you’ve heard but people are juicing celery every single morning! It’s wild. I’ll admit that I tried it for a while and felt no different haha. It didn’t “cure” me of anything but I didn’t really care because I love the way celery juice tastes. I think I fell in love with celery way back in the day during snack time in 1st grade. Ants on a log will always have a special place in my heart!

I love to make salads centered around celery. It’s crisp, delicious and (bonus!) inexpensive. Whenever we’re in between seasons I always find it hard to make salads. And this combination really makes it simple. I combined pieces of celery with apple cubes, toasted almonds and a simple vinaigrette. My favorite part of this recipe is the crunchy, toasted slivered almonds that are covered in rich olive oil and tons of lemon juice. They’re so good!

Hope you enjoy the salad.
