This apple and celeriac salad brings a freshness and brightness to your meal while committing to the definition of “seasonal”. And I say “seasonal” with the utmost respect. I’ve never been ready to give up bananas or avocados, chocolate, olives or other “staples”. Shit did I just do “quotes” again. And I suppose those items fall under the definition of “local”. I can say I am not a proponent of berries, beans, tomatoes or summer squash in winter due to cost and moreover lack of taste. But on to “salad”!
This awkward root veggie, rather foreboding at face value, grows like a beet or kohlrabi. With it’s thick roots and roughly a third of the ball in the ground and the rest nestled in the soil, it has a mild, almost sweet taste. See here.
