"Sticks" of celery and carrots tossed with water chestnuts ("stones") are nicely coated in a dill and Dijon mustard dressing in this recipe from Nancy Zicker of Port Orange, Florida. She says, "This salad is a big hit with our children - it's a great way to get them to eat their vegetables. Not only do they love the taste, but they also love the name of the recipe!"
