How to dice celery

Together, celery, carrots and onions make up mirepoix, the classic French trio that's a base for sauces, soups, and stews. Celery itself is underrated -- it can be the star of any dish. It's especially delicious alone, in stir-frys and matched with other vegetables in salads.
To dice it, first rinse the stalks well, especially between the bottoms. Cut off and discard the flared out white bottom end, since it tends to be tough.
Next, cut the stalk into even sections. This will make it easier to make lengthwise strips.
Cut the sections into lengthwise strips. Make the strips narrow for a small dice, and wide for a large dice.
Then just slice across the strips crosswise to make the dice.
