Celery root salad is one of my favorite salads, even though when I was a little girl I used to hate it. I remember my mother used to mix celery root with potato so I couldn’t tell there was celery root in. For a while her trick worked on me but later on I began to know the difference between the texture of a potato and celery root ..Any how, now I love this vegetable and try to use the same trick on my children..Is it working? Nope, I dont think so! I guess these days kids have sensitive taste buds and can tell the difference of the textures better than I did years ago
This recipe is very easy and light..I don’t know if this recipe’s a favorite among children but if you like celery root than you might want to try the recipe.
