Thai Celery Salad
A very simple, yet strangely addictive salad.
1 tablespoon light oil (olive oil will work fine)
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons fish sauce
1 thinly sliced red chile (or substitute 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes)
6-8 celery stalks, (about 4 cups) thinly sliced, leaves included!
3 thinly sliced scallions / green onion
1/4 cup chopped cilantro, plus a few leaves for serving
1/2 cup roasted, salted peanuts
Combine first 5 ingredients then pour over and mix well with the celery, scallions and chopped cilantro.
Let sit to marinate for 1 hour refrigerated before serving for best flavor.
To serve, sprinkle with additional cilantro leaves and peanuts.
