Apple and celeriac salad with mayonnaise dressing.

Created at New York's Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in the 1890s, the salad was an instant success. As often happens, many variations evolved—some with raisins, some with chopped nuts. This lighter version contains lactose-free yogurt.

3 cups celeriac, shredded 400 g
2 apples, cut into thin slices 360 g
1 Boston lettuce, or curly leaf 200 g
1/2 green peppers, finely diced 80 g
3 tbsp mayonnaise 40 g
2 tbsp soy yogurt 30 g
2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 3/4 lemon
4 tbsp walnuts [optional] 24 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]


  1. Cut the apples into thin slices, without peeling them, but eliminating the core. Place them on the serving plate. Clean the lettuce and place it on the serving plate, leaving the centre for the celeriac.
  2. Peel and shred the celeriac, then put it in a bowl and sprinkle with the lemon juice to avoid darkening. Add a pinch of salt. Finely dice the bell pepper and add it to the celeriac.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the mayonnaise with the yogurt. Pour it over the celeriac and toss well. Adjust the seasoning then transfer to the centre of the serving plate.
  4. If desired, garnish with walnuts(*). Let rest 10 min to allow the flavours to blend, then serve.


(*) Blanched walnuts will be more attractive. To blanch, put them in boiling water 3-4 min, drain, and peel.
