What a find. It's the first time I've tried my hand at celeriac and this dish turned out great. I had 1 1/4 lb. peeled celery root and cooked it 10-12 min. Sliced it up and covered it with marinade about 4 or 5 hours before we ate. The marinade is so tasty. I added about 3 tbsp minced onions and used the borage (lovage), dill, tarragon, parsley. I served this with baked chicken breasts and my diabetic baked beans (posted). The wonderful taste of this salad will lend itself to many other meals, or a potluck buffet, and I'm going to try the leftover marinade with thin sliced cucumber...expecting it'll be good! Thanks, chef Jude!
