Endive, Celeriac and Avocado Salad

Bitter, sweet, salty and tart, this simple salad is easily one of my favorites to serve at fall dinner parties. For a lunch entree, pile the dressed salad on a platter, arrange slices of leftover cold roast chicken alongside and garnish with an extra drizzle of vinaigrette.

  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 medium celery root (about 1 pound), peeled and cut into 2-inch-long matchsticks
  • 3 tablespoons Djion mustard
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons hazelnut oil
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • Kosher salt

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large bowl, whisk the olive oil with the lemon juice and salt. Add the celery root and toss to combine. Refrigerate for 1 hour and up to 6 hours, until the celery root has softened slightly.

  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the mustard with the vinegar, then gradually whisk in both oils until incorporated. Whisk in the cream and season with salt and white pepper. Stir in the minced chives.

  3. Add the endives and avocados to the celery root and toss to combine. Add half of the vinaigrette, season with salt and white pepper and toss. Serve, passing additional vinaigrette at the table.
