"I Hate Celery" Salad

Dish: Salads
Dish Type: Vegetables
Diet: Low-calorie
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Servings: 4+
Prep Time: 10 min?
Cook Time: n/a

  • 1/2 cup - Almonds (slices or slivers)
  • 1 cup - Bean sprouts / Mung beans
  • 1 cup - Cilantro
  • 1 cup - Yellow split-peas (pre-cooked)
  • 2.5 cups - Celery
  • 4 Tbsp - Lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp - Sumac
  • 2 Tbsp - Salad oil (olive, grapeseed, etc)

Chop celery and mung beans into small pieces.  Loosely chop cilantro.  Combine all ingredients in a lidded container.  Seal tightly and shake until well-mixed.  Serve chilled.


I don't really hate celery, but I like it a whole lot better prepared this way!

Note that cilantro and lime juice are to taste--you probably won't need nearly that much, but I like it tart.

Sumac can be hard to find but is well worth the search; try a Middle Eastern or Indian grocery.  It's a purple-reddish spice.

I recommend getting dried yellow split-peas and pre-cooking a few cups to have on hand--I think they take about as long as rice.  They add color and protein to this salad.  Alternate: garbanzos, soy, or your favorite bean.

Oh yeah, it's vegetarian.
