  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced celery (1 medium stalk)
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions (4 medium)

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    If you like tomatoes, add 2 medium tomatoes, chopped, to the mix.
  • tip 2
    You can make this salad up to 24 hours ahead, but the olive oil will solidify a bit so you'll have to let it stand and then stir it right before serving.
