Recipe: Stuffed Celery

Stuffed celery is not exactly a SALAD, but it may be used to take the place of a SALAD in a meal. It is often served with SOUP as an appetizer, but since it is high in food value it deserves a place of greater prominence in the meal.

Any desirable cheese may be used to make the stuffing. Roquefort cheese is probably the most popular one, but many persons do not care for it. CREAM cheese, ordinary American cheese, or even cottage cheese finely mashed may be used for this purpose.

Put into a bowl the quantity of cheese needed to fill the number of stalks of celery desired, mash it finely with a fork, and mix it with CREAM or SALAD Dressing until it is of a thick, CREAMy consistency. Season highly with a dash of red pepper and salt and, if desired, mix with very finely chopped nuts. Fill the hollows of the stems of celery with the mixture, sprinkle with paprika, and serve on a plate garnished with lettuce.
