Green Olive Stuffed Celery

This is my favorite recipe that I recall my grandmother making for us.  I’m so happy that this simple snack idea has made it through three generations so far, and we still have them as a pre-Thanksgiving Dinner snack.

 

You will need:

1 bunch celery, washed, and patted dry
1 16 oz container cream cheese
1/2 cup green olives stuffed with pimento, diced
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)

1. After celery has been washed and patted dry, trim ends, and cut celery stalks into 2 – 2 1/2 inch lengths
2. In a bowl, mix cream cheese, olives and nuts (optional) until well blended.
3. Fill celery “valleys” with cream cheese mixture.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.
