Ingredients

  • 12 celery stalks
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • 3 tbs sour cream or creme fraiche
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup of crasins or golden raisins
The creamy filling contrasts well with the crunchy celery, and the walnuts add a wonderful flavor. This appetizer goes well with pre dinner drinks. Celery sticks may be cut into bite sized servings. Be sure to use a vegetable peeler to peel the tough ribs off of each celery stick. This recipe may be doubled or tripled.

Directions:

  • Wash and trim the celery, peel the underside with a vegetable peeler.
  • Cut the sticks into 4 inch lengths.
  • In a bowl combine the blue cheese, cream cheese, crasins or raisins and sour cream. Mix until smooth.
  • Fold in all but 1 tbs of the walnuts. (1 tbs of the walnuts reserved for garnish)
  • Neatly fill the celery stalks with the cheese and nut mixture.
  • Chill and garnish with the reserved walnuts.
Alternate Ideas:
  • Use the same filling to stuff cherry tomatoes. Cut off a slice at the top of each tomato, scoop out the seeds with a small spoon and fill.
  • Fill Belgian endive leaves in the same way as the celery.
