Celery Root, Green Apple and Pistachio Salad

This is an extremely easy, tasty and summery salad with lots of room for creativity! I serve this as a side when I have a small party: I also enjoy having it on hot summer days as a light lunch. 

Ingredients (serving 3-4 for a salad or side)

  • ½ of a medium size celery root, peeled, thinly sliced and cut Julienne style
  • 1 medium green apple, thinly sliced and Julienne (do not peel just wash thoroughly)
  • 1 tbsp. natural honey
  • 1 medium lemon, squeezed
  • 1 tbsp. coarsely ground pistachio
  • A few Pansy from your garden, if you have some. If not, use other edible flowers or parsley, or dills.  This is just for garnish and for extra touch of summer look.


In a regular bowl, toss the celery root and apple with half the lemon juice right away to prevent them from going yellowish.

Now whisk together honey and the rest of the lemon juice and toss with the salad.

Transfer salad to the serving bowl.  Sprinkle with ground pistachio.

Decorate with your flower or herbs and serve immediately.
