Base for soup with carrots and onions, celery is also good raw (if it's fresh and crunchy) dipped in what is called "pinzimonio" in Tuscany: extra virgin, salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar. Fennels and raw artichokes are also eaten like that in Tuscany by the way.

I also use celery together with homemade mayo for a quick tuna or chicken salad.

I also find celery to be a versatile ingredient in several "risotto" as it adds some texture to it.

Do you use celery?

I sometime serve it as an aperitive cut in short sticks and with a bit of Gorgonzola cheese spread in the middle part.

Celery is one member of my four essential vegetable mise en place prep. The other three are onions, carrots and peppers. With these I can make just about anything.

Then there's the elegantly simple snack of celery stuffed with peanut butter.

I love celery. I chop them up and add to casseroles and soups.I also cut them in half and add some peanut butter.

I must try that, never thought of that combination but it sounds good.

Wow-that sounds DELICIOUS. I bet it'd be good with a blue cheese-like type of spread as well.

Celery certainly is a challenge. I've never been too terrible creative with it; I usually wither add it to soups (it's a must for chicken noodle, vegetable, gumbo, jambalaya-I'm sure there's a few more I can't think of), or eat it raw with either peanut butter or a ranch veggie dip.

Celery is good in certain things, but don't use so much that it overpowers the taste.

NEVER PUT CELERY DOWN THE GARBAGE DISPOSAL.....CAN BE A QUICK RUINATION!!

I should use it in making soup, but when I do use it, it's usually raw to add some texture to the foods I'm making (various types of mayo-based salads).

I use it along with onion and carrots as the classic base for sauces and risotto and such. Also in soups. And it's great diced up in chicken salad and tuna salad for sandwiches.

I love the idea of putting blue cheese in the middle part - I'm going to try that soon as I have both in the fridge. Maybe in a few minutes actually, as I'm thinking it's bound to be sooooo good and can't wait to try it! And the pinzimonio sounds great too.

It's also good in a Bloody Mary or Bloody Caesar, really crisp and cold.

And as part of a raw vegetable dip - along with carrots, radishes, peppers, etc.
