Celery Seed Salad Dressing

Celery Seed Salad Dressing


Celery Seed Dressing is my favorite homemade dressing.  It’s not a southern staple but I have found many variations of the recipe from cookbooks where my grandma lived in Ohio.  She actually lived somewhat near a celery swamp in Hartville Ohio.  They call them muck farms and the soil is black and moist.  Celery is 90% water so it makes sense that it requires a lot of water to grow.

I have a celery vase that is a bit glamorous. Celery vases were all the rage in Victorian times. Celery has gone in and out of culinary fashion over the years.  I can’t imagine buying something so fancy for my celery now.


If you like a sweet dressing, this is a good one.  I’m sure you could alter the amount of sugar in it, but I like it just as it is written.

Celery Seed Dressing

1/2 medium onion, chopped (I used Vidalia)

1/4 cup vinegar (I used rice vinegar)

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon celery seed

2/3 cup sugar

2 teaspoons prepared yellow mustard

1 cup vegetable oil

Place all ingredients in a blender, and blend on  high until smooth and sugar is dissolved.  Store in refrigerator.


Super easy and delicious!
