Simple Celery Salad recipe

Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 5 minutes
This extra-simple salad is a great way to highlight summer celery. It makes a great dish as part of a picnic or alongside other summery dishes such as potato salad and tomato and onion salad.


  • 7 stalks celery
  • 1 onion
  • 5 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp. vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • Pinch dried mixed herbs
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Whisk together the oil, vinegar, mayonnaise, herbs, salt and pepper. Dice the onion and add to the dressing. Chop the celery into cubes.

  2. Put the celery into a pan of boiling water. Simmer for 5 minutes, drain under cold water and pat dry. Toss with the dressing whilst still warm. Serve immediately or leave to sit for half an hour so that the celery can soak up the flavour of the dressing.

I sometimes like to add some cooked potatoes or diced ham to the salad for extra flavour, but you can leave it as it is if you like. Recipe serves 4.
