I love salad, carrots and celery, any king of celery. I love to make a salad with carrot, apple, and celery for something refreshing. I don’t use mayo for the salad. I use a spicy yogurt that I love.
Did you know that there are 3 types of celery? I found about stalk celery when I was a grown woman. We had only 2 types in our area. I like it now so much that I use it very often. Grown for its succulent stalks or petioles, celery dates as far back as 850 B.C. and was cultivated not for its culinary use, but for its medicinal purposes. Today, there are three different kinds of celery: self-blanching or yellow (leaf celery), green or Pascal celery, and celeriac.
Leaf celery is grown more for its aromatic leaves and seeds.
Celeriac is grown for its delicious root, which is peeled and cooked or eaten raw.
Pascal celery is grown for stalks.
- 2 carrot sliced thinly
- 2 apple sliced thinly
- 4 celery stalks sliced thinly
- ½ cup celeriac cut very thin (root celery)
- Homemade red chili jam
In a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, a pinch of red chili jam, pepper, and salt. Add the carrots, apples, celery, and celeriac. Mix everything very well. I decorated it with chili jam because I love a spicy salad. Serve it with baked potatoes or a steak.
