Firefly's Celery Salad

It is already the fourth week in our Summer of Salads Series!
This refreshing, crunchy recipe pairs well with most mains. Ruby Red Kraut was our favorite pairing with the balsamic dressing, but Classic Kraut tastes great as well. Try adding garbanzo nuts, or your favorite minced dried fruit for a more robust salad. We topped our version with toasted pine nuts and shaved Parmesan, and loved the result!
