Celery Salad from Bountiful Baskets

I am determined to not waste anything fomr my BB (Bountiful Baskets)! If we don't use it all, we are not saving as much as possible. It has become quiter a fun game for me. So here is one of the salads that I am making today. Later, I will adding a couple more cucumber salads.

Sorry that there aren't more pictures. While Gabriel was here, I put black-eyed peas in the wonder box and small crock pot, then started the salads. In the middle of it all, Stephen brought Lincoln and picked up Gabriel. Poor little Lincoln got hungry and fussy. Since I get to be the ogre who is teaching him to take a bottle when mommy isn't here, things got a little hairy around here!! Just don't seem to be as good at multi-tasking as I used to be.

CELERY SALAD ----Really wonderful light salad for the hot summer weather . . . love it!

  • 1 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries, chopped
  • 1/2 cup frozen green peas
  • 1 1/2 T. fat free mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 T. plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup chopped, toasted pecans
  • 2 t. lemon juice
  • 1/8 t. salt

Look below to see how what I put in the salad. Notice anything interesting? There is an extra bowl of something that looks suspiciously like peeled, seeded, chopped cucumber. I was trying to make a couple of salads and got the stuff mixed up!

I had put it in before I realized what I had done. It just makes the salad a little lighter flavored and juicier.

This would also be really tasty using craisins instead of dried cherries. I think I will add left over chicken, diced, so that it will be a complete meal in one dish. ;-) not that I am lazy or anything like that!
