Celery salad works so well on toast. Includes Radishes and Feta Cheese. Top with Lemon juice and freshly ground pepper. Or add an Orange dressing on top.
By a happy accident, I discovered that Celery and toast go great together.
I had so much celery left over from my vegetarian gumbo recipe and I had just made toast. Somewhere, there was a voice in my head saying that I should try combining these two just to see what they would taste like.
There is a spiciness and a saltiness to this toast that makes it irresistible. The radishes added a strong flavor without overpowering the dish.
No toast recipe is complete with out cheese. For this one, I decided to try feta cheese. It is a light cheese and also evens out some of the strong flavors of celery and radish.
This recipe doesn’t really need a dressing. However, if you want something light, go with this light dressing made Star Anise and Fresh oranges.
There was a garlic surprise when you bite into this toast with celery salad. I spread a little garlic butter on top of the toast. Try it and tell me what you think.
I like quick snacks like this. It is also healthy and I am not feeling guilty about not eating my celery.
If you want the vegan version of Feta, try this Vegan Tofu Feta Cheese recipe.
