Celery chopped up into little pieces and then mixed into any potato or pasta salad with mayonnaise. In stew, cut into two-inch pieces. I never eat raw celery sticks on their own - not much flavor and too stringy.

Try celery root! RAW. Wonderful thinly sliced/shredded with a dressing made with yogurt, a spoon of Dijon mustard, little lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Add walnuts. Enjoy!
Or make a dressing with yogurt, Dijon mustard, fresh pressed garlic and chopped parsley.
Or any dressing based on yogurt (or mayonnaise)

Oh, by the way, this Iranian friend of mine wasn't good with the weaker vowels. He called celery "salary". But he was a good cook.

Raw. I dip it in ranch dressing or spread peanut butter in it. This thread has made me hungry for some.

I cut it up in my collard greens as a seasoning.
I use it to make chicken broth.
I cut it up in my beans for seasoning.

I normally just eat it as raw sticks with either peanut butter, cream cheese, pimento cheese, hummus or a creamy salad dressing. I also slice it raw in green salads; or diced raw in potato, egg, ham, chicken, tuna, pasta salads. If I have a whole bunch that I want to use up before it wilts, I also make cream of celery soup. I use the tops for soup broths or to stuff the cavity of baked chicken.

One of my favorite summer snacks is celery sticks, carrots sticks and cucumber slices with some sort of dip or dressing.
