Celery Crunch Swirls
1 whole bunch celery
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup grated American cheese
1 tablespoon minced onion
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon milk
Separate celery into ribs; trim and wash.
Combine cheeses and blend until smooth.
Add remaining ingredients and thoroughly blend.
Spread mixture in center of each rib. Press 3 ribs together with cheese facing the center. This results in a center of cheese with celery completely surrounding it.
Secure bundles with rubber bands.
Chill for at least 1 hour.
Remove rubber bands and slice 1/2 inch thick.
Yield: 12 to 16 servings
