I love to make this nutty salad when I find celery roots which are firm and have the green leafy tops on them. You need to own a mandoline with a fine julienne blade or this salad will not have the correct texture. Adding the leaves, nuts, and cilantro is my touch.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place celery root and leaves, cilantro, and pecans in a large bowl. Whisk mayonnaise, lemon juice, lemon zest, coriander, celery seed, and salt in a small bowl; pour over celery root and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Cook's Note:

Cut the root in half. If it is brown on the inside, the root is no good. If it is white, take a root half and slice it on the fine (1/8th) julienne blade of a mandoline or a food processor (the 1/4" julienne blade is way too thick).

This recipe was really good! I had never had celery root before but my husband requested it so I found this recipe, one of the few on here for celery root. I forgot to put the pecans in at first but added them after we ate half of it. It tasted almost the same with or without them. I liked it a little better without though. My husband couldn't really tell either way. I followed the recipe exactly other than that and it was nice and refreshing. I will definitely be making it again! Read More

This salad is truly a refreshing change to the idea of "salad". I do not use the salt as I don't usually add salt but it can be added after if it is required. Read More
