You don't have to dig very deep to find great reasons why you should eat celery salads. Celery is highly nutritious. It has a lot of Vitamin C which is great for the immune system, is known to lower cholesterol, and prevent heart disease, strokes and cancer. If you need any better reason, this salad tastes delicious too! I have also found that it tastes great with the Raw Ranch Dressing found in this salad recipe.
