Celery Salad / Insalata di Sedano

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


  1. Put celery in ice water and let stand 30 minutes to crisp; drain, and dry the pieces.
  2. Mix the olive oil, lemon juice and shallots in a small bowl, add salt and pepper.
  3. 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.
