We love celery root, and I’d say my husband makes a celery root remoulade at least once a month. This one was his best however, and it was the addition of lemon into the sauce, plus lots of dill, that really did it. The recipe here from Ina Garten is where he got his inspiration and then he just riffed on it with the dill.
And here’s another tip: the salad itself isn’t called a remoulade. Remoulade is the sauce, which has a ton of variations, but is compared to a tartar sauce. For ages we have been calling this salad a remoulade, incorrectly. If you haven’t ever used a celery root, but you like coleslaw, you should give this a try. It has the creaminess of a slaw, but the celery root has a more complex flavor. Furthermore, celery root is amazing for you. It’s high in fiber, potassium, magnesium, and B6. It’s also good for high blood pressure.
