The celery root can be shredded in a food processor, but you'll get a thicker and smoother result if you cut the vegetables into julienne strips on a mandoline. This salad improves overnight in the refrigerator.Plus: More Vegetable Recipes and Tips
2 large fresh kumquats, seeded and finely chopped
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons hot and sweet mustard
2 small garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 large celery roots (3 pounds)—trimmed, quartered and peeled
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 pound carrots, peeled and cut into 2-by-1/2-inch julienne strips
1 cup pecan halves (4 ounces), toasted and coarsely crumbled
How to Make It
In a bowl, combine the kumquats, orange juice, sour cream, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper.
Using a mandoline or the large shredding disk of a food processor, cut the celery roots into 2-by-1/4-inch julienne strips. Transfer to a very large bowl and toss with the lemon juice to prevent discoloration. Add the carrots and the kumquat dressing and toss. Cover and refrigerate for 1 day.
Taste the salad for seasoning. Transfer it to a large platter and scatter the pecans on top.
The kumquat dressing can be refrigerated, covered, for up to 2 days.
