Do you know what Celeraic is? Or maybe you know it by its other name – celery root? Either way, it’s a delicious crunchy vegetable that is exactly what it sounds like, the root of celery! Its often served in France with a Remoulade sauce, as a rich and creamy side. This spin on the traditional is crisp and much more fresh tasting than the original.
Find celery root in your local grocery or speciality store. Look for a root that is still hard and looks fresh. Peel and then grate by hand or in the food processor. Its tough to grate, but worth it!
The sweet spiciness of fresh chopped tarragon is perfect with the crisp, clean tasting celeriac. If you’re a frequent reader of our Spicy Tuesday, you’ll know that tarragon is more than just pretty! It’s a powerhouse – Did you know that tarragon is called “the king of herbs” because it is rich in nutrients and vitamins? There was a study done in 2005 that determined tarragon (specifically the oil) worked as a free radical scavenger. You’ll love the taste AND the nutrition in this delicious salad.
