prep time: 20 minutes
What You’ll Need
1 sharp knife or Japanese mandoline
1 large bowl
1 small bowl
For the Salad:
1 celery root (softball size)
1 medium sized tart apple
1 tablespoon chopped rosemary
For the Walnut Vinaigrette:
¼ cup toasted walnuts, roughly chopped
¼ cup walnut oil (worth finding, trust us, but in a pinch you could use any other nut oil)
2-3 tablespoons sherry wine vinegar (or apple cider, balsamic, or brown rice vinegar)
pinch of sea salt
Using a sharp knife or Japanese mandoline, cut or julienne the celery root into thin sticks.
Cut the apple in a similar way, just a bit thicker.
Combine celery root and apple in a large bowl.
Whisk the ingredients for the dressing together in a small bowl. Pour dressing over the mixed celery root and apple.
Serve and enjoy!
