  1. Step 1

    Whisk buttermilk, mayonnaise and mustard in a bowl until smooth. Season.

  2. Step 2

    Arrange the lettuce and celery on a serving platter. Sprinkle with the chives and blue cheese. Drizzle with half the dressing and serve with the remaining dressing. 

Recipe tip

Got a bunch of celery in the fridge? The tender yellow leaves and stems from the middle of the bunch are too good to toss. Use them to add a mild, sweet flavour and a pretty leafy flourish to salads like this one. 

Smart swap: If blue cheese isn’t your thing, you can swap it for 1/2 cup shaved parmesan instead.
