Celery Salad

Insalata di Sedano

Mary Ann Esposito

Poor celery is almost an afterthought in most salads, but in this salad it is the star.

Serves 4 to 6


12 ribs celery thinly sliced
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 small shallot, finely minced
Sea salt
ground pepper
1 small head radicchio shredded
4 ounces Asiago cheese, shaved


Put celery in ice water and let stand 30 minutes to crisp; drain, and dry the pieces.

Mix the olive oil, lemon juice and shallots in a small bowl, add salt and pepper.

Toss radicchio with 3 tablespoons of the dressing and arrange on a platter. Toss celery with the remaining dressing and scatter over the radicchio. Sprinkle the shaved cheese over the top.
