While not a spectacular recipe I found this to be a good, solid salad that went well with my corned beef. The celeriac adds a bit of a bitter note while the Granny smith apple sweetens it and the dressing has a little mustardy bite, making the whole very enjoyable, and certainly healthy. This type of cabbage salad also keeps well, even dressed. Several days in the fridge and it's still enjoyable.

Other than dealing with the effin' celery root, this is a very easy and cheap recipe that makes a lot and is a filling side dish. Furthermore, it's not a bad recipe. The problem is that is that it's thoroughly mediocre with hardly an ounce of flavor outside of vinegar and cabbage. Not bad, but so mediocre as to actually be an offensice recipe. IMO you could sub in jicama for the celeriac, or just use more cabbage, which would at least make it waaay easier to prepare. However, with a number of MUCH BETTER slaw recipes available at CL, why waste your time with this one? Not worth it. I won't make again.
