Crispy Celery Salad Review by Deb on June 16th, 2012:

Yum, yum. Substituted sunflower seeds for pecans due to allergy.

Crispy Celery Salad Review by Ed T on July 18th, 2012:

Discovered this recipe lacked the Mayonnaise ingredient for the "Mayonnaise mixture".
I used 1/4 cup Best Foods Mayonnaise and 1/4 cup Kraft Miracle Whip and found this worked quite well.
Recipe produced an excellent salad with great taste and texture. Be sure to toast the pecans.

Yummy! I didn't have parsley and I substitued walnuts for pecans because that's what I had on hand. It says mayo mixture, but I just used the plain yogurt to keep it lower fat. It was super tasty.
