Dish 44: Japanese cuisine – Sweet and spicy celery salad

This dish is far yummy than I was expected. I am not a fan of celery, actually I seldom eat celery in my daily meals. WW like it, he “beg” me to cook a celery dish for him, then I found this recipe and cooked it. After the first bit of this cooked celery, I was surprise that it was so yummy. The original flavor of celery was covered by the sweet and spicy. Of course, I ate a lot of them. I definitely like to cook celery in this way in the future and it’s worth you to try it!
