Celery Root and Pear Slaw

Crunchy celery root is an underappreciated yet completely delicious veggie. It lends sweetness to this tangy slaw, which I like to serve with pork roast or baked ham. —Roxanne Chan, Albany, California


  • 1 medium celery root, peeled and julienned
  • 3 cups shredded red cabbage
  • 3 medium pears, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 4 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 4 teaspoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons honey
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese


  • Combine the first 7 ingredients. In another bowl, combine the next 9 ingredients; pour over slaw, tossing to coat. Sprinkle with blue cheese.

    Great Salad. Love the flavors and the combination of the fruit and celery root. The salad dressing is an awesome addition to this salad.
