Yield: 32 appetizers Prep 45 mins Start to Finish 45 mins


  • 4 celery ribs plus celery leaves for garnish
  • 1 red apple
  • 1/3 cup  shredded smoked chicken breast
  • 3 tablespoons  crumbled blue cheese, such as Maytag
  • 2 tablespoons  mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons  fresh lemon juice


1. Remove a thin strip from back of each celery rib with a sharp knife to create a flat bottom. Cut celery ribs diagonally crosswise into thirty-two 3/4-inch-long pieces.

2. Halve apple lengthwise and core. Slice apple into 1/8-inch-thick slices, then cut enough slices into 1-inch-long matchsticks to measure 1/2 cup. Gently fold apple together with remaining ingredients in a medium bowl until just combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

3. Top each piece of celery with a mound of apple mixture and garnish with celery leaves. Makes 32 appetizers.
