I have no celery but I want to make a potato salad. So what did we do? We went out in the yard and cut down a thistle. It looks and tastes very much like celery when cut and trimmed. Most people cook the stem if they are going to eat it. But it was great in this potato salad. It didn't keep long though so I would recommend making just enough to eat in a day or two.
