With a delicate and fresh flavor, celery adds depth in many recipes but is not often a star ingredient. In his new cookbook Essential Emeril, Emeril Lagasse challenges you to showcase the oft-neglected vegetable with his Watercress and Celery Salad.
By peeling the stalks and thinly slicing on a mandolin, the celery’s refreshing flavor shines through, adding brightness to the salami and grated Parmesan Reggiano. Lightly dressed with a lemon-dijon caper vinaigrette, this dish will make a great addition to any meal.
