The celery or celeriac has been cultivated in the Aegean and Mediterranean regions for thousands of years.        

The word celery comes from Greek ?????? (selino) referring to The Odyssey by Homer. It has been used as medicine while the leaves with its stalks were used as a decorative herb in the ancient times.        

This delicious and nutritious vegetable contains vitamins A, B,C and minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc.          

If you buy a celery stalk with its root all together, cut the stalk from its root and freeze the stalk and the leaves for months, especially for soups.      

This very easy-to-do celery root seasonal salad or meze will accompany your winter meals.
