This crunchy low-cal veggie is the perfect transport for yummy dips, as well as a key ingredient in soup, stocks, French and Creole cooking. Celery contains anti-inflammatory components as well as a variety of antioxidants, nutrients and minerals.
Refrigerate wrapped in foil to allow gasses to escape for the longest shelf life. If consuming within a few days, keep in a plastic bag in the crisper. If celery ribs are wilted, separate the ribs and place them in a bowl of ice water for several minutes before use.
Celery is rarely the star of a meal, but takes on a crunchy supporting role next to chicken wings, in a bloody mary, or on veggie platters. Dice up some celery to add crunch to your next salad or eat it whole smothered in peanut butter or goat cheese.
