Celery Remoulade

Celery Remoulade is a delicious celery root salad, very healthy, and super easy to make. Everyone loves it. The recipe I use makes its calory content much less than the original French recipe which includes a lot of mayonnaise and creme fraiche. Both ingredients are too heavy for my taste. This is the way I make it, and it’s light, healthy and just as delicious. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise 
  • 1/4 cup of plain Kefir (replacement for creme fraiche)
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 celery root (about 1 pound), peeled and julienned
  • 3 carrots , peeled and julienned
  • 1 beat, peeled and julienned
  • Black Pepper
  • herbs, as desired.

DIRECTIONS

In a bowl, put the julienned  celery root, add the mayonnaise, lemon, mustard, salt, pepper. Mix well. Serve cold.
