PREPARATION:

  1. Whisk together olive oil, lemon zest, ¼ cup lemon juice, shallots, celery seed, celery salt, anchovy paste, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper. 
  2. Pour over the celery, walnuts and parmesan. 
  3. Toss to coat and refrigerate at least 1 hour to allow celery to crisp and flavors to deepen.
