Celeriac Remoulade



Celeriac Remoulade

Renowned for its ugly appearance, celeriac’s beauty is most definitely to be found within! This is our variation of “Celeriac Remoulade”, a classic French salad which can be as simple as grated celeriac mixed with herbs and mayonnaise. We’ve livened it up a little, and made it even tastier – and healthier.

     Serves 2

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Wheat Free, Gluten Free, Vegetarian

You will need:

  • 50ml crème fraiche
  • 1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon cornichons, roughly chopped
  •  200g celeriac root, peeled and roughly grated
  • 1 small apple, peeled, cored and grated
  • 1 tablespoon flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped

To Serve:

  • Squeeze of fresh lemon, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  • In a large bowl, mix the crème fraiche, mustard, lemon juice, capers, and chopped cornichons. Put into a jar and shake.
  • Just before serving, add the dressing to the grated celeriac and apple, and the parsley. Mix well, to blend completely with the sauce.
  • Spoon the salad onto serving plates, and top with another squeeze of lemon juice, and pepper. Serve the salad as soon as possible, to prevent discoloration.

The Pure Package’s Tip:

Keep your old jars – they are fantastic for shaking ingredients together, especially salad dressings. Using a food processor to grate is a super-speedy way of creating fine vegetables.

Pairs With:

  • Mains: Very Pink Salad; Turmeric Chicken kebab; Chicken with whole spices
  • Sides: Herby smashed new potatoes; herbed barley cous cous; garlic-grilled sweet potatoes


This salad marries wonderfully with smoked fish – the silkiness of the fish is perfectly balanced with the crunchy bite of the celeriac. For a simple yet delicious lunch, simply top any leftovers with slices of smoked fish, and serve with a handful of baby greens.
