Apple and Celery Root Slaw with Watercress

Apple and Celery Root Slaw with Watercress

Is there anything better than a refreshing salad alongside a delicious roasted hunk of meat??  I especially like this slaw as a topper for Pork Tenderloin Medallions with Apple Cider Glaze.

2 Granny Smith or Honey Crisp Apples
1 medium celery root, peeled and cored
1/4 cup cider vinegar
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 Tbs. spicy brown mustard
1/3 – 1/2 cup good olive oil
2 Tbs. chopped fresh tarragon or 1/2 tsp. dried tarragon
1 cup 4 Star Hydroponics watercress, tough stems removed

To make slaw, cut apples and celery root into thin matchsticks, either by hand or with a mandolin.

Place apples and celery root into a large glass bowl and toss with vinegar; season to taste with salt and pepper.

In a small bowl, combine mustard, olive oil and tarragon; pour prepared dressing over slaw and toss to coat. Let salad rest for 20-25 minutes before serving.

When salad has rested the appropriate amount of time, toss in the watercress and serve at once.

Now You’re Cookin’,
