A delightfully different slaw style salad. You can use more or less horseradish to suit your taste. I love to serve this as a pre-dinner salad spooned on top of a bed of watercress or part of a large buffet.

I really liked it! I wanted the dressing a little sweeter and I felt there was too much dressing (and I already had cut it by 1/3. Make sure your cheese has some "bite/spunk" to it so that it doesn't get lost in the flavors of this slaw. I enjoyed the addition of horseradish. I also added some lemon pepper to mine. Thanks for posting!

A great salad! If pressed for time, grate (coarse) the celeriac and the apple and cube the cheese (use the best Gruyere available) into 1/3-inch cubes. Thank you for a great addition for those of us who love celeriac.
