Celery salt is a seasoned salt used as a food seasoning, made from ground seeds, which may come from celery or its relative lovage. It may also be produced using dried celery or seed oleoresin (Wikipedia, nd).

Allergy Alert:

Since celery salt can be traced back to the main ingredient celery, if you are allergic to celery do not consume celery salt (Anaphylaxis Campaign, nd).

Common Uses:

Celery salt is an ingredient of the Bloody Mary cocktail and the Caesar cocktail. It is also commonly used to season Chicago-style hot dog, the New York System wiener, salads, and stews. It can also be used to liven up a coleslaw. It is a primary ingredient in Old Bay brand seasoning. Celery salt is often used by food producers to prevent spoilage while avoiding listing sodium nitrate on the ingredients list directly (Wikipedia, nd).
