Celeriac Salad

Make this salad just before serving to avoid extracting excess moisture from the celeriac and producing a watery dressing. Celeriac is also sold as celery root or celery knob. Use a mandoline to produce paper-thin slices.

  • 3/4 cup Homemade Mayonnaise
  • 8 medium cornichons, sliced 1/8 inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh tarragon
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 medium celeriac, peeled (about 1 1/2 pounds)


  1. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, cornichons, capers, and mustard. Season with salt and pepper. Blend until well combined. Fold in tarragon and parsley; set aside.

  2. Slice celeriac, using a Japanese mandoline fitted with the julienne blade, into 1/8-inch-thick strips into a large bowl. Add mayonnaise mixture, and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
