Looking for something different to do with your abundance of strawberries — besides Strawberry Rhubarb Pie? Let me show you how to make an amazingly simple and yumtastic little side dish called Strawberry Celery Salad.

Yes, I said Strawberry Celery Salad. As in, there is celery in with the strawberries.

We’re going to take some marvelous celery…

Magic, that’s what.

I know. You’re still hung up on the celery thing. You’re thinking Amy…what? Mix celery and strawberries…and then some honey stuff? Have you been out in the sun too long?

And, to be completely honest, that’s exactly what I was thinking when I saw this recipe in a cookbook I found one day called Forgotten Recipes (which, by the way, is on my list of Best Cookbooks for Homesteaders!). I could not get my head around the combination of all those flavors together. But I’m a brave farm(ish) girl, so I decided to try it.

I’m so glad that I did.

Try this next time you’re craving something amazing. Or when someone invites you to a picnic or potluck and you want to bring something different and memorable — and of course I mean different and memorable in a good way. I guarantee you people will be asking for the recipe.

It’s delicious. Serious. I would not lie to you. So how about we make this amazing salad of yumminess?

Strawberry and Celery Salad with Honey Dressing

(from Forgotten Recipes by Jaine Rodack)

Scroll to the bottom for a printable version!

2 cups sliced strawberries
1 cup sliced celery

Cut these up and mix carefully in a bowl. Now, in another bowl, make the dressing:

6 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup honey
a pinch of salt

(The original recipe has 1 tbsp of salt and 1/4 tsp paprika. I took the liberty of leaving these out. Because, reasons.)

Combine dressing ingredients and beat or whisk until frothy. Pour dressing over strawberries and celery right before serving.

(Or you can be like me and pour it over two hours before serving and discover that it turns the concoction into strawberry and celery soup. Which is actually very tasty, but is no longer a salad.)

Enjoy!
