Celeriac and Fennel Remoulade

November 6, 2011

Author Notes: This is a refreshing and light version of the classic French celeriac remoulade, with some shredded fennel bulb mixed in, giving just a hint of anise flavor, and a mustard lemon vinaigrette rather than the richer traditional mayonnaise dressing. This has become a standard side at our Thanksgiving table because it adds a fresh, tart crunch that breaks up the texture monotony of all of the standard rich and creamy sides.Fairmount_market

Serves: 6-8


  • 1 medium celery root

In This Recipe


  1. Use a knife to trim away the hairy outside of the celery root, and cut into chunks that fit into a food processor funnel. Cut off the stalks and trim the fennel bulb and cut into similar sized pieces.
  2. Shred the celery root and fennel bulb pieces in a food processor. Transfer to a bowl and toss with a tablespoon of lemon juice to prevent discoloration.
  3. Whisk the mustard, vinegar, remaining lemon juice, and olive oil together. Pour over the shredded celeriac and fennel, mix, and adjust seasoning.
