Celery With Almond Butter and Dates

Total Time

These yummy appetizers can be served on a buffet table or as party snacks. Use organic ingredients if you can find them. The amounts given are very approximate because I never really measure this. While the salt is optional, I like to add it because it adds another layer of flavor and contrasts with the sweetness of the dates. This tastes good whether you use a lot of dates or just a few - your choice.
