Celery-Apple Salad

The celery root is an interesting vegetable and is being used a lot in the German kitchen. We add it to the broths and you can make salads and little burgers out of it. It has an interesting taste, like nuts but better. The celery root can be combined with apples, walnuts, or lettuce. I add it to the regular green salad with carrots. Why don’t you try it out? I am sure you will like it…
1 medium sized celery root (also called celeriac)
1 large apple or 2 smallwer ones, red and not too sweet
1 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
1 tbsp fresh chopped dill
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup fresh made or real mayonnaise
100ml  apple vinegar
50 g walnuts (chopped)
salt, black pepper

How to make it
– Peel apple, cut out core and cut is in 1/4 inch (or thinner) slices
– Peel the celery root and grate it with a grater OR boil it for 3 minutes in salt water, then filter it
– Mix mayonnaise, sour cream apple vinegar, dill, parsley, salt and black pepper (in  a large salad bowl)
– Add grates celery to the dressing and mix it gently – let it soak for 20-30 minutes
– Add apple slices and the walnuts; decorate with 1-2 whole walnuts and parsley

Drip some lemon juice of the apples and they won’t become brown
