This salad recipe is delicious, quick, easy and nutritious. It is low carb, diabetic friendly and family approved. I often make a big batch using a full bunch of celery, 16 oz of button mushrooms and up to 2 cups of cheese for our family reunion.

How To Make simple mushroom and celery salad

  • 1
    This salad is a serving for one. It may be multiplied to feed any number of servings.
  • 2
    Wash,dry and slice celery into thin "eyebrow shapes. Add to a salad bowl.
  • 3
    Gently wash, pat dry, trim away the stem tips and slice the mushrooms thinly. Add to bowl with Celery.
  • 4
    Measure and add the cheese to the salad in the bowl. If you don't have the shredded blend you can use fresh grated Romano and or Parmesan Cheese or I have also used plain crumbled Feta cheese. Do not use the powdered parmesan cheese in the can.
  • 5
    Toss the salad in the bowl.
  • 6
    Add the dressing just before serving. I use bottled Greek Dressing. The dressing tends to "cook" the mushrooms after a few hours and they become soft.
  • 7
    A simple oil and vinegar dressing can also be used. Or if you prefer, just a splash of olive or avocado oil may be used.
  • 8
    To make the salad ahead, simply make the recipe to step 5 and then store in the fridge up to 5 days in a covered container.
