Celery Salad

During these past few winter months I have posted quite a few sweet recipes, so it’s time for something fresh, savoury and healthy! I love winter celery, and am more than happy to simply bite into crisp pale stalks with no adornment. However, with just a few simple ingredients, this salad makes a nice change.

Celery Salad


For each person, thinly slice 1 large or 2 medium sticks of celery. Add 2 tbsps plain soya yoghurt, 1 tbsp chopped chives, 4 or 5 chopped walnuts, a little lemon juice and some salt and pepper to taste. Mix and enjoy with some crusty bread.


Yum! 😉

  1. Looks refreshing. This winter I’ve had too many sweets and breads and not enough green vegetables. I pulled some celery stalks out to add to a little lunch plate yesterday (sweet potato casserole) and the celery tasted so refreshing.

  2. The term ‘winter celery’ is not one I recognize – it looks like ‘our’ celery but is a lot paler in colour. Love the vegetable anyways, be it for salads or in cooking – this is great, thank you!!

    • I suppose it is just “celery”, but here the Germans also eat root celery/celeriac a lot, so I’ve got into the habit of differentiating! I love the palest stalks I can find, as they are more tender than the greener ones. 😀

  3. This sounds great! I never thought of combing celery with yogurt, but this really appeals to me! It would also add a little fiber and crunch to the yogurt I eat at noon each day. Sometimes I feel like I swallow it in a bout four bites! I like the idea of adding in a little more nutrition, too. 🙂
