March is national celery month. It's a month to celebrate this marshland vegetable. It’s a Celery-bration. Celery has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. I will share the top five celery treats to try in March.

1.    Fruity Ants on a Log - fill the center of each stalk of celery with peanut butter, honey and raisins. Enjoy!
2.    Tuna Salad - enhance the texture of your tuna salad by adding chopped celery to your tuna mixture and enjoy on slice of bread of your choice.
3.    Stir Fried Celery - Heat and sauté over olive oil with other vegetables such as carrots, broccoli & onions.
4.    Salsa - Cook onions and celery until tender and mix in other ingredients and enjoy over baked tortilla chips
5.    Soup - Steam and drain celery juices into your favorite soup dish and savor the flavor.
