Celery has the most fantastic crunch, making it a great salad ingredient. To make my own blue cheese dressing lower calorie & lower sodium I 'extend' the dressing with celery puree.
Enjoy on any salad or this Celery Spinach Salad with crunch! —BoulderGalinTokyo

Chunk celery stalk into 8 pieces or so.
