This was pretty good. The directions are a little confusing though-- the liquid specified was not nearly enough for the quantity of celery. I ended up simmering in water, draining, and then adding the vinegar mixture for a final steam. I didn't bother with any of the ingredients after the lettuce, but I bet the black olives would be good.
