About this recipe

This salad is a must at home when we have a pasta dish or pizza for dinner. I love how fresh it is and how its lightness and brightness pair with more substantial or cream-based dishes. It is also perfect as is with a good slice of freshly baked bread. When we bake bread at home, this is my favorite way of eating this bean celery salad.

Tips to make the best healthy

This celery salad is refreshing with punchy onions, beans (for plant-based protein), and tons of fresh herbs. Any bean can be used, but navy beans are creamy. To give this salad a Mediterranean vibe, use chickpeas. Use home-cooked or canned beans. For fresh herbs, use what you have in the fridge: parsley, dill, or fennel fronds.

I used white onion for this recipe, but feel free to use red onions or shallots. But, regarding which aromatic you use, the first step is to “pickle” them with the vinegar.
