Asian Celery Salad
Side Dishes, Vegetables and Salads

Cool and Crunchy Asian Celery Salad is a Simple Side Dish

When I noticed an almost full head of celery in the fridge my mind immediately went to this recipe for Sesame Celery Salad. Ma’am used to make it when we were kids both in the “too hot to cook” summer time and as a great side dish, particularly with Asian cuisine.

It takes very little time and effort to make, but just note that it should sit for about an hour to let all of the flavors meld together. Super simple and delicious.
