Recipe for Smoked Chicken, Apple, and Bleu Cheese on Celery


4 large celery ribs
1 red apple
1/3 c. shredded smoked chicken breast
3 Tb. crumbled bleu cheese (Gorgonzola or Maytag)
2 Tb. mayo
1 1/2 Tb. lemon juice
salt and pepper
celery leaves, for garnish (if desired)

Remove a thin strip from the back of each rib of celery to create a flat bottom. Cut celery ribs diagonally (on a bias) into 1-inch or bite-sized pieces.

Halve apple lengthwise and core. Slice apple into matchstick-sized pieces. Gently fold apple with remaining ingredients until just combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Top each piece of celery with a mound of apple-cheese mixture and garnish with celery leaves.
