Apple Celery Salad with Ricotta Dressing
It may not make sense at first, but the crunch of the apple and celery combined with sweet ricotta and honey is lovely. The colors remind me of a pretty picture, as the bright red and soothing green are just so wonderful to look at. This is definitely a very pretty dish for any special occasion and it doesn’t hurt that honey is traditionally an ingredient for lovers to “sweeten the love”. Its natural goodness lifts moods and gives you a euphoric uplifting feeling.
