I am fascinated with garnishes, especially simple garnishes constructed from ordinary ingredients. After all, simple garnishes put the wow into a dish. This one is fast and simple, using just celery and cold water.
Remove a stalk from a head of celery and wash well. Using a peeler, peel long ribbons of celery off of the celery stalk.
Drop the celery ribbons into cold water and submerge completely for at least 20 minutes or refrigerate overnight.
