Celery Root & Apple Salad

Each time I get a celery root in my CSA box I wonder what I'm going to do with it.  I have a favorite recipe for almost every other item I receive, and now I finally have a favorite celery root recipe. 

Chef Robert De Nicola of Bon Appétit taught this recipe in a recent cooking class that I attended.  The only change I've made from his original recipe is to double the amount of apples.

Chef Robert showed us different "plating" options which I attempted to recreate tonight.

The stacked apples looked a lot better when he assembled them.

Celery Root & Apple Salad

Ingredients (6-8 servings)
  • 1 lb celery root (celeriac)
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise

  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 4 Granny Smith apples
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons chives, chopped
  • Peel and cut the celery root into julienne strips.
  • Peel and core apples. Cut into thin slices and toss with lemon juice to prevent browning.
  • Add celery root and apples to a large bowl.
