Celeriac, Beetroot, Apple and Walnut Salad

Celeriac, Beetroot, Apple, Stilton and Walnut Salad

This is totes moreish – I ate a whole bowl of it to accompany a quiche for dinner last night. I really love celeriac; it’s one of my favourite vegetables. I love how versatile it is, and how different it tastes depending on how you cook it. It’s nutty and chewy in a gratin like this beauty, or in a soup where it goes soupa creamy (geddit?).

Here it’s crunchy and soaks up the dressing beautifully. It also soaks up the beetroot, hence the insane PINKNESS of this dish. But who wouldn’t want a pink salad?

Here’s how to make it!
