Thanks for joining Sarah and me for Meatless Monday too. Still trying to get myself back on track after last week’s travel and looking for easy and healthy meals. I am also of the belief that most, if not all, veggies taste better on the grill. I am not sure exactly what inspired this Grilled Celery and Blue Cheese but I do know, it was crazy delicious.
Grilled Celery and Blue Cheese
I’ve been out to eat with my family where they pushed over their celery and blue cheese dip to me thinking it was not worth eating. Well, I was always excited to dip into that blue cheese with a vengeance. I love the sharpness of blue cheese and how it gives any salad or dish a huge pop of flavor with a small amount.
Celery does not have to be the boring “diet” veggie anymore! I am giving it new life and new taste with this fun Meatless Monday meal everyone will love.
Since BBQ season is in full swing, it is the perfect time to look for some tasty sides that pair with any main dish. Admittedly, I gobbled up this Grilled Celery and Blue Cheese for lunch this weekend as a salad. Simply, it’s just grilled celery with a handful of blue cheese and a drizzle of spicy Buffalo sauce. I used Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce but any will do. This post contains Amazon affiliate links.
I do love the traditional grilled peppers, zucchini and eggplant but those get rather old after a few weeks of summer grilling. I am looking for new veggies to grill and this Grilled Celery and Blue Cheese has just the right satisfying flavor profile I was looking for.
