  • Yield: Makes 8 cups; 6 to 8 servings


  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons champagne vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • About 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds celery root

  • Pepper


1. In a bowl, whisk olive oil, mustard, vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt to blend.

2. In a 4- to 6-quart pan, bring 3 to 4 quarts water to a boil. Meanwhile, peel celery root and cut into 2-inch-long matchstick-size strips. Add celery root to water and cook until tender-crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and immediately add to dressing, along with parsley. Mix to coat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
