Celeriac Caper and Rocket Salad is a simple winter salad that looks very striking. It tastes delicious too. A perfect light gluten-free, vegan accompaniment to winter roasts.
It is amazing what you can do with winter vegetables. Celeriac is much underused in it’s raw state. It has a delicious nutty taste and nutty texture which works so well in salads. Caper berries preserved in brine bring this winter salad to life with salty bursts with the mustardy rocket leaves and tangy celeriac.
Keep the salad very simple and allow the flavours of the three ingredients to shine through. Dress with olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt and pepper.
