a tuna salad miracle

Yesterday it was rainy and I felt like having a tuna melt and some Campbell's tomato soup. So I did. And the odd thing was that I put celery -- actual raw celery -- into my tuna salad. Voluntarily. Those of you who know me know that this DOES NOT HAPPEN.

Now, I will grant you that it was minced up REALLY small, because there is just no universe in which large chunks of raw celery have any place in a tuna salad. *shudder* But for a melt, my usual relish didn't seem right. I wanted the diner-style tuna melt that I have so often had at greasy spoons... and those always have celery in 'em. So I went for it, making sure to mince up my celery nice and small. And it's true -- the celery tastes good in there, if your tuna salad happens to be consorting with melty cheese and crispy butter toast.

Open minds are fun.

Welcome to the dark side. Celery is good. Celery is very, very good.

Even (especially?) in tuna salad. Also in chicken salad, where I believe you also hate it.
