Celeriac Coleslaw

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Sarah_Jayne

I recently discovered celeriac (celery root) and I am trying to find ways or using it in recipes. This looks like a nice alternative to boiling it. I found this recipe in the February 2008 copy of BBC Good Food Magazine.

I have been making this slaw for a few months and it is awesome. I have made it with and without the apple andI actually prefer it without the apple. If I have some red cabbage or carrot around I will add that too. It is really yummy and a great use of celeriac.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Use vegetable peeler or sharp knife to remove the skin from the halved celeriac. (Rub a little lemon juice on the cut side of the other half before storing it, or it will turn brown).
  2. Cut into thin slices, then cut into matchstick strips as thin as you can manage.
  3. Do the same with the apple, discarding the core.
  4. Mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice and parsley.
  5. Then toss through the celeriac and apple.
  6. Serve.
