Ribbon celeriac salad

Celeriac Salad

Serves 6

  • 1 celeriac, peeled

  • 1 bunch fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • 2 anchovies, finely chopped

  • 2 heaped tablespoons capers, finely chopped

  • 2 heaped tablespoons small sweet and sour gherkins, finely chopped

  • 5 tablespoons fat free natural yoghurt

  • 1 heaped tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 2-3 tablespoons sherry, red or white wine vinegar

  • sea salt

  • freshly ground black pepper

Once you've peeled the celeriac, chuck away the skin and then carry on peeling around it, giving you long ribbons. If they break every now and again it doesn't matter. Continue until you reach the fluffy tasteless inner core, which you should throw away. Remove and discard the chunky stalks from the parsley, then finely slice the thinner stalks and roughly chop the leaves.



Put your celeriac and parsley into a large bowl and mix together with all the other ingredients. Season to taste, adding a little more vinegar if need be, then serve straight away.



Try this: Put some of this salad on a plate, then cover it completely with some smoked salmon and plenty of ground black pepper.



Or this: Roast a nice chicken. Allow it to cool and serve with this salad.

Method

Inspiration for this came from me being so bored with traditional celeriac rémoulade, which is an old-fashioned French salad kind of similar to this but using grated celeriac, mustard and mayonnaise. It's really handy to have a good peeler for this recipe. I tend to use capers in vinegar for this dish and it works really well.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
