celery snack ideas

Celery is one of those lowly vegetables that just isn’t sexy. Sure, we add it to bulk up soups and Asian cuisine, but most if it goes rubbery and gets thrown away. Am I right? I have a few ideas to remedy this.

Eat celery for a snack. Oh yeah. When it’s fresh, it’s crunchy, juicy and has a little cup-like area to hold yummy stuff.

Tip: If you don’t like the stringy stuff on the bottom, just use a potato peeler and give it a quick peel.

Sweetened-up-bumps – strawberry cream cheese with craisins on top. (Use low fat)

Perfect for your afternoon snackfest.
Perfect to take to a potluck as an appetizer.

Warning – this may even take away your chocolate craving. I said May.

chop ends off celery

store celery ready to eat

Finally, store celery ready to eat: Tupperware has these amazing fruit and vegetable containers. Chop the ends off the celery and wash each stalk and let them drain. Then chop each stalk into two or three pieces and store in the containers with the lid sealed. They’ll last much longer than wilting in the bag you purchased them in.
