Celeriac Salad

Spicy Celeriac

This salad is so quick and easy to make

Celeriac has to be one of the ugliest vegetables around. Just look at it. It takes some doing to make it look good. It doesn’t take much, however to make it taste great and I think I have suceeded in this celeriac salad recipe.

For this celeriac salad, you might want to get yourself a mandolin as this makes the job of shredding it much easier. I love the look and texture of the long spaghetti like strips. You could of course simply grate it or cut in thinly with a sharp knife.

I came up with this recipe while going through my family cookbook. Originally, this was a French/Italian recipe but with a few adjustments, I gave this celeriac salad  an Indian twist.
