Goat Cheese and Walnut Stuffed Celery

Last month, when I developed a couple of recipes for Duda Farm Fresh Foods, I actually made two celery recipes instead of just one that they asked for. I was actually going to share this recipe as well as the celery & smoked salmon cream cheese dip at the PMA Fresh Summit but it didn’t work out to share all three recipes at the event. I’m glad to share this with you during Thanksgiving week because it’s such an easy, easy appetizer.

I love the bite of the goat cheese contrasting with the crunchiness of the walnuts and celery along with the sweetness of honey! Enjoy!

Goat Cheese and Walnut Stuffed Celery

Yield: 12

Prep Time: 15 min

Total Time: 15 min

A very quick and easy appetizer to serve during the holidays or for any casual get together. If preparing the night before, do every step except for adding the honey.


4 celery stalks, cut into thirds

5.3 oz. package of spreadable goat cheese, I used Chavrie

1/4 cup of chopped walnuts

raw honey, to drizzle


In a medium-sized bowl, mix together spreadable goat cheese and walnuts. Stuff celery boats with a butter knife and drizzle with honey. Serve immediately after adding honey.

Cook's notes:

It's very important to use spreadable goat cheese, otherwise you will not be able to stuff the celery easily.

    This looks so delicious! and simple too … I was just wondering what would it taste like if you mixed some blue cheese in with the goat cheese? Hmmm …

      Hi Ann,

      I have no idea! I would give it a try & mix with just a small spoonful of each & see. I would love to hear about it, if you try it.

    I think I have a raw celery allergy (for real…every time I eat it my ankles itch!), I would eat the heck out of this. Anything with goat cheese is going to be delish!

    We love stuffed celery around here, but I had never even considered goat cheese. What a great idea; and I love the touch of the honey.

    Made this appetizer for our Holiday Party a few years back and loved them! Great twist to use celery…all the flavors worked well together and they were easy to make! The only change I made was to use agave nectar or maple syrup instead of the honey. Thanks for the great recipe!
