Celery and Pear Salad
Do you want something sweet and savory? Then this yummy salad might do the trick.
This recipe comes from "The World's Healthiest Foods" cookbook by George Mateljan. It's super easy and more than likely you'll have the ingredients on hand.
Combine 3 stalks of sliced celery, 1 medium cubed pear (or apple), 2 TBS chopped walnuts, 1 tsp lemon juice, 1 TBS Parmesan cheese, 1 TBS extra virgin olive oil, and sea salt and pepper to taste.
This is a great side dish for any kind of meal or all by itself.
Interesting note: Celery helps to lower blood pressure through a pytochemical called phthalides. (clevelandclinic.org)
