Celery Salad With Walnuts, Dates and Pecorino

This impressive cool-weather salad is an extra-ordinarily addictive mix of sweet, crunchy and salty ingredients. You can feel free to sub dried cranberries or cherries in place of the dates. They recommend it for a Thansgiving side dish, as it can be made ahead by refrigerating the salad and dressing separately for up to 1 day (store the walnuts in an airtight container and add to the salad just before serving). Recipe from Food & Wine Nov 2008 edition.

    I served this for Thanksgiving, so I used dried cranberries instead of the dates. When slicing the celery, don’t forget to also use the leaves. The flavors were great! Thanks for posting!
