Snack-Time Celery with Vinegar Dressing

Snack-Time Celery with Vinegar Dressing

Turn celery into a great snack with mustard and vinegar dressing. The celery smell isn't overbearing, so those who don't like it can try it, too.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Celery (leaves and stalk)
2 stalks (about 150 g)
☆Spicy mustard
1 teaspoon
1 tablespoon
☆Usukuchi soy sauce
1 tablespoon
☆Dashi stock (I used bonito soup stock this time)
1 tablespoon


1. Separate the celery into leaves and stalks. Cut the stalk into matchsticks about 4-5 cm long, removing any tough stringy bits.
2. Mix together all of the ☆ ingredients to make the mustard vinegar dressing.
3. Boil water in a pot, then add the stalks you chopped in Step 1. After 30 seconds, add the leaves, boil briefly, then strain in a colander. Be careful not to overcook the celery.
4. Completely drain all the water from Step 3 and, while it's still hot, add the celery to the bowl from Step 2. Toss the celery to coat, then chill in the refrigerator for about an hour.
5. Serve and enjoy! The strong, spicy flavor is delicious paired with rice, or great as a snack on it's own.
