Author Notes

This is the first time I tried this recipe specifically for this contest. I love the earthy taste of celery root and the dijon and lemon only enhance the flavor. I adapted this recipe from the one on David Lebovitz's blog. I added two stalks of celery and their leaves, which brightened up the dish in both color and taste. —lesmcs

What You'll Need
  • 1 cup mayonaise
  • 2 tablespoons heaping dijon mustard
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 1 or 2 celery roots, depending on size (roughly 2 pounds)
  • 2 stalks from inner most part of bunch of celery, including leaves
  • celery salt, optional
  1. Make the dressing by combining mayo, mustard, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.
  2. Peel the celery root and shred using a food processor with the grater attachment or use a cheese grater. Put shredded celery root into bowl with the dressing and stir until combined. If there is too much celery root freeze it to use in soup at a later date.
  3. Chop celery stalks and mix into salad. Adjust seasoning and serve with a sprinkling of celery salt on top.
