Root Celery Salad

(Kereviz Salatasi)

Root Celery Salad
1 small celery root, or half large celery root
1/4 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
4 spoonful mayonnaise (or use yogurt of the same amount)
1/4 cup red onion, sliced

2 cups water
1/2 lemon juice

Peel the celery root and cut in thin slices (like matchsticks). Put them in a pot with a couple cups of water with lemon juice (so that they keep their white colour). Boil them for about 3-4 minutes and drain.

Add the rest of the ingredients in a medium-sized boll and mix with a spoon. Add in the drained celery and mix again. Place in a serving dish. This is a very delicious salad which goes with any kind of meat or chicken meal as a side dish. You can also serve it on bread slices as an appetizer.

Lovely! I like all these salads, and will certainly make this (with 4 spoons of joghurt).

Hi Binnur,
I like your cooking site, simple recipes with nice ingredients. I tried this salad with celery root, we liked it. I come from Azerbaijan but currently live in France, I've already tried dishes from different countries. I like Turkish cuisine and I find similar recipes in our cuisine. Good luck with your web site!
