Molly Stevens - Celery Salad with Apricots & Candied Almonds

Celery Salad with Apricots and Candied Almonds

This crisp salad makes a fresh addition to a holiday menu, providing contrast to the heavier roasts and usual sides. It can be assembled ahead, just wait to add the olive oil until 1 hour before serving and add the almonds at the very last minute.
