Whenever I use diced celery in a delicate salad like egg salad, I use a trick my mom taught me. You pull the tough outer strings off the stalk of celery before dicing. Using a paring knife with the flat edge against your thumb, you grab the strings at the widest cut end of the celery stalk and pull the thicker fibrous strings off.

Hi prestonkellyann 3227658 - We have fixed the recipe to include the addition of the olives. Thank you for pointing that out. -Editors of RecipeLion

What about the 1/4 Olives? What kind,what chop.?

I prefer to grate the onion as I don't like to bite into a piece of onion! I also add chopped Craisins for color and taste!
