Got celery? We’ve got recipes. Celery is an unassuming, underappreciated vegetable. It’s not often the main character. But give it a chance to shine, and celery can blow you away! It’s fantastically refreshing in a salad with apples and Parmesan cheese, or beautiful blended with apple and ginger in a green smoothie.

Celery is also fabulous in a supporting role: it provides essential flavor in soup broths and a necessary crunch in salad recipes. It’s one of the most versatile vegetables there is! Whether you’re looking to use up a bunch or just want to eat more of it…here are the tastiest recipes you’ll find.

And now…the tastiest celery recipes to use up a bunch!

Celery nutrition

Is celery healthy? Yes, there’s no real contention on this one. Celery is one of the healthiest snacks out there! Of course, you can even snack on it with peanut butter or ranch dip: no recipe needed! Here are a few of the main benefits of celery (source):

  • Celery is a low calorie food. Celery has just 10 calories per stalk.
  • Celery is high in fiber. 1 cup of celery sticks has 5 grams fiber.

This easy celery salad could not be more refreshing! Take this crunchy veggie to new heights paired with apples, Parmesan and a tangy vinaigrette.


  • 8 celery ribs plus ½ cup celery leaves
  • 1 red apple
  • 1 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • ½ tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup or sugar
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup shaved Parmesan cheese


  1. Thinly slice the celery ribs. Measure out the celery leaves. Thinly slice the red apple.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the white wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, maple syrup or sugar, and kosher salt. Gradually whisk in the olive oil one tablespoon at a time.
  3. In another bowl, toss together the celery and celery leaves with the apple, dressing, and Parmesan cheese shavings. Serve immediately or refrigerate until serving. This tastes best the day of making, but you can refrigerate leftovers for a few days (refresh them with a little vinegar or salt if necessary).
