For the past two weeks I have gotten a large, beautiful, leafy bunch of celery from my CSA.
Problem is, I don't especially like celery on its own — too grassy, too stringy. Any ideas of how to use it? Preferably ones that don't include 2 cups of heavy cream?

• Good Question: Best Uses for Fresh Celery
Personally I love celery shaved very thin in salads (like this one). I find that it really takes care of the stringy texture, when it's shaved so thin.
Readers, what are your favorite uses for fresh celery? Preferably cooked ones?
