I make stuffed celery for every family get together we have. It’s funny because there are olives in this recipe and I do not like olives. Even though I don’t like olives this stuffed celery is one of my favorite things to eat. I have been making stuffed celery since I was a little girl and didn’t actually have a recipe for it. I made the tasty snack for our family Yule celebration because Shannon wanted me to post it on here. I hope you all try it out and find that you like it.
1 Bunch of celery (washed and cut into 2 to 3 inch pieces)
2 8oz packages of cream cheese
1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
1/2 cup Spanish olives, chopped
2 Tbs. Spanish olive juices
Place the cream cheese into a medium sized bowl and set it aside for a few minutes to let it soften. When the cream cheese is soft enough to mix add the onions, olives and the olive juice. Mix well. Fill each piece of celery with some of the cream cheese mixture and place them on a plate or platter. Cover with Saran wrap until it is time to serve it.
You can use store brand cream cheese and olives for this recipe. I usually use Philadelphia cream cheese and Hannaford brand Spanish olives. Stuffed celery is a great dish to bring to family or work parties.
