Celery, Walnut, and Parmesan Salad

Total time 16 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup)
This salad offers textural treats—crunchy celery, meaty walnuts, and crystalline cheese. Because the salt draws water out of the celery, it's best to serve this simple salad shortly after tossing the ingredients together.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups thinly sliced celery (about 1/2 pound)
  • 6 tablespoons (3 ounces) finely diced Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
