A simple lemon and olive oil dressing gives a bright sharpness to this easy celery salad. Apples provide a touch of sweetness, while creamy hazelnuts round it all out. The recipe comes together in less than 10 minutes and provides a great option for fall-inspired salads.
Serves 4
  • 1 medium shallot, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium lemon, juiced
  • 10 medium celery stalks, thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • 1 medium apple, cored and sliced thin
  • 1/4 cup toasted hazelnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
Whisk the shallot, celery seeds, and black pepper together with olive oil and lemon juice in the bottom of a large mixing bowl.
Add the celery, apple, hazelnuts, and parsley to the bowl, and then gently toss them together until well-coated by the olive oil and lemon juice. Serve immediately or store the leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.
