Rosie Makes A Celery Salad.

Here's a side dish for you I think you'll like.
It's celery salad and it's good!
It's different and quite tasty.
 And it all comes together in a flash.
You've got sweet, sour,  heat, crunch, bitter, and salty
all in one bite.

 If you can, get fresh Medjool dates.
They're the best!

Celery Salad
4 stalks celery, with leaves
juice of one lemon
handful of dates, coarsely chopped
handful of whole almonds
Parmesan cheese, shaved, about 1/4 cup
2 TB extra virgin olive oil
red pepper flakes
kosher salt
freshly ground pepper

Spread almonds on baking sheet and toast at 350°
about 8 or so minutes, until ... toasty.
Let cool and coarsely chop.
Remove celery leaves and reserve.
Thinly slice celery on the diagonal.
Toss celery and leaves, almonds, dates, and lemon juice.
Add Parmesan, oil, and red pepper flakes.
Season with salt and pepper.

Try it.
You'll like it.

Another "Trust Rosie" moment.
