Recipe by Geema
Celeriac is a delicious yet often ignored vegetable. It needs to be scrubbed well and then have all the tough peel removed with a good sharp knife. When you cut the celeriac, the flesh darkens in contact with air, so immediately place the cut pieces into water and lemon juice until final preparation.

This was lovely. Celeriac is not much known, but more people need to try it as it is so refreshing and tasty. The dressing in this salad is really good and really suits the rich flavour of the celecriac. A keeper.

- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 3⁄4 cup sour cream or 3⁄4 cup yogurt
