Celery Root and Walnut Salad

  • Yield: Serves 4
Celery Root and Walnut Salad


  • 3/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, plus 1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon zest (2 to 3 lemons total)
  • 1 1/4 pounds celery root, (also called celeriac)
  • 1/2 cup walnut halves, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup walnut oil
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 tablespoons muscatel-wine vinegar or white balsamic vinegar
  • 3/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Fill a medium bowl two-thirds full with cold water; add 1/4 cup lemon juice. Trim top and bottom of celery roots, then peel with a vegetable peeler or paring knife. Transfer to lemon water.

  2. Toast walnuts in 1 tablespoon oil in a small skillet over medium heat until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Add shallot; cook, stirring, until soft and translucent, about 2 minutes. Stir in lemon zest. Set aside.

  3. Whisk together remaining 1/2 cup lemon juice, vinegar, and remaining 3 tablespoons oil in a small bowl. Cut celery root into matchsticks (or julienne using a mandoline). Toss celery root with walnut mixture in a serving bowl; add parsley. Pour dressing over salad. Season with salt and pepper; toss well. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.
