Celery Almandine

Recipe by  

"This is a wonderful recipe that my Aunt Stevie shared with me at my engagement party over 35 years ago! This is a super easy, rather elegant, slightly crunchy, kinda nutty side dish--and I really don't even care much for celery."

  • Cook's Note:
  • This can be started early, even a day ahead, and finished just before you're ready to serve the main course. Toast the almonds, add the remaining ingredients, cover and refrigerate until you're nearly ready to serve. This side dish is especially good with Asian-style dishes, like my pork chops Indonesian.

The taste is fantastic. It is very easy to put together once the nuts are shelled (I used pecans because I have them on hand!) The ginger adds to the flavor without distracting the taste or smell of the celery. I'll be having this again soon!

Kind of bland. And that's after adding a clove of garlic and chopped green onion. Maybe some dried cranberries next time? But there probably won't be a next time.

I made this for my husband who typically tuns up his nose whenever celery is in front of him, but he very much enjoyed this and asked for it again! This will make its way into my recipe book.

I enjoyed this but my husband not so much. I would probably try making this with olive oil instead of butter to make it a little healthier.

This was SO GOOD, exactly as written. We are not celery fans, but we all loved this recipe. Our two year old ate over half of the batch herself!
