I actually didn't even like celery until a few years ago. I thought it tasted like dirt. Finally I tried it with ranch dressing, and I guess the stars were aligned just right because now, I love celery. It is strange to me how a food can grow on you and go from a disliked food to a loved food. Ever had that happen? One food I know will never make that change for me is HOMINY. BLECH! I will leave the hominy for someone else to love.
As an added bonus, celery is super easy to prepare and grill. First, I cut both ends and washed the stalks well. I sprinkled the stalks with Cavendar's Greek Seasoning and Private Selection California Roasted Garlic Powder from Kroger. I think the spice selection may be key here. You can toss them with a little olive oil, or I actually just used olive oil spray and gave them a light coat. Grill them over medium heat until they get kinda flimsy. I would say I cooked them about 15 minutes total. Flipping occasionally. I made salmon with them, and looooved the whole meal.
One note, celery can be pretty stringy, and I have heard some people actually pull the strings off their celery. I cut mine into pieces after grilling and didn't even notice the stringy-ness.
Love what you eat and eat what you love. This photo makes me drool so bad. :)'
