Celeriac was a good friend to me back in Wales, where I found a salad based on it an excellent standby for all sorts of entertaining and for myself!  What's even better about it is that you can make the salad, dressing and all, a day in advance.  Sadly, I rarely find this vegetable in Sicily but when I do, I make the most of it.  On Saturday I found some and below is my celeriac salad recipe. I now perk it up with some chilli pepper and add carrot as a Sicilian touch:

Celeriac salad

Slice 1 large, peeled celeriac or 2 smaller ones in a processor and tip it into a serving dish. Add some grated carrot or carrot batons and a chopped red chilli pepper.  Make up a dressing of 5 tablesp olive oil, 1 tablesp white wine vinegar, 1 tablesp Dijon mustard, some dried oregano and seasalt and black pepper to taste. Mix the dressing well with a fork and then pour over the salad, stirring.  Cover with clingfilm and leave in the fridge for at least a couple of hours.

Hello Patrizia,
Sorry it has taken me awhile to get back to you!!
I lREALLY love celery root salad also, but haven't even contemplated it for awhile, because where we live it can't be found. Must drive 3 hours to get it (and it is not always available), even in Dallas.
Your recipe sounds d e l i s h and you are so luck to have enjoyed your celeriaic recently!! But you know how fortunate you are
Sending hugs to you and Simi!
May you hear good music today!
