Spinach celeriac apple salad with honey mustard vinaigrette

spinach celeriac apple saladDo you like celeriac? Otherwise known as celery root? Have you ever tried it raw?

On the outside, celeriac is not the prettiest of veggies. But on the inside..mmmm. Just slice into it (not an easy task, I know) and you will discover its strong and wonderful aromatic scent, slightly earthy and just a wee bit sweet. I find celeriac gorgeous, both raw and cooked.

The salad is perfect on its own, as a light and fresh lunch, but also makes for a great side to a main meal. I was greedy enough to eat everything by my(little)self.
