"This recipe has been a "Family Tradition" in our family since I was a little girl. The holidays are not the holidays at my house if this is't on the menu. Simple to make, and really tasty morsels to munch on during the Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter holidays."

Thanksgiving wouldn't be complete without this yummy celery. I changed it up a little and used pecans for the nuts. Love these so much and so does my family!

When I got done mixing in the nuts and spread it on the celery, I chopped more nuts and spread them on top. If you love nuts, you can't be without this on your table for the holidays. Nice crunch and great flavor, not to mention a great appetizer! I will be making these more often and using them as snacks and to go with my sandwiches. A great addition to any sandwich for sure!

We chopped our nuts up really fine so even the old folks could have some and everyone thought it was excellent! It was a nice added appetizer for our holiday feast and was enjoyed by all. Thank you for sharing your family tradition with us Linda! It will now be eaten at our holiday table also.

I really enjoyed this tasty recipe. It is so easy and the nuts give it that extra crunch. I cut up the celery and then keep it in ice water in the fridge until I am ready to stuff them and serve. Thanks Linda for posting this recipe that could become a tradition in my house too
