Celeriac Salad

From: Linda McCartney’s Home Cooking, p. 72

A salad made from raw celeriac roots with a mayonnaise and mustard dressing.

This was one of the recipes I was afraid to try. Too vivid were the memories of the celeriac salad my Mum would sometimes prepare for my grandfather by opening a glas of cooked, shredded celeriac and adding some dressing to it.
With this salad, I was positively surprised! I did reduce the mayonnaise to 2 tbsp. and added 3 tbsp. of (plant-based) yoghurt, which made the dressing lighter and less dominant in taste.

I got another surprise when eating the salad, though. It seems I am allergic to celeriac roots- something I did not know about before. My tongue started itching and I did not finish my salad. Maybe this was the reason I remember not liking it?
