A perfect midwinter salad: crunchy, citrusy & bright with fresh flavor yet also convenient, frugal, easy-to-make (minutes) and minimalist. It’s an ideal make-ahead option, too!


  • 6 cups sliced celery (fairly thin), PLUS 1 cup of the celery leaves, chilled
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil (or oil of choice)
  • 11/2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsely leaves
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seed (or more to taste)
  • large pinch of sea salt (or to taste)


  1. In a large bowl, toss together all of the ingredients. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.


Storage: Store the salad in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Celery Seed Options: The celery seeds can be omitted or you can substitute up to 1 teaspoons of dried herbs such as dill, herbes de Provence, or basil.

Celery Leaves: If you plan to store the salad for several days, keep the leaves in a separate container (dry) and then add some to the salad when ready to serve
