Celery Salad

It sounds a little odd to use celery as a main salad ingredient, but Celery Salads are actually quite common in Italy. So, when I needed a side dish to pair with a new recipe I was developing for Baked Buffalo Chicken Thighs, I thought Celery Salad would be perfect! 


What to Serve with Celery Salad

What pairs better with buffalo chicken than celery and blue cheese? I can't think of anything. This celery salad would also pair nicely with my Grilled Buffalo Chicken Sandwich Recipe and my Buffalo Chicken Empanadas.

These flavors pair together so perfectly, people everywhere enjoy this flavor combo traditionally as a favorite appetizer. As a matter-of-fact, one of our favorite appetizer recipes is my Low Carb Buffalo Wings with Gorgonzola Sauce. The Gorgonzola sauce is TO DIE FOR! I am not kidding you! It's a must-try!

Because we are so obsessed with this flavor combo, it just made sense to me to toss together a simple Celery Salad to pair with my buffalo chicken thighs for dinner, and I'm happy to report, it is a WINNER. We love it so much, I just HAD to share it with you!
