Delicious! This was surprisingly delicious! I wasn't sure about celery root, but now I know I really like itGÇöat least in this wonderful slaw. Made it as-is but with no raisins. Absolutely wonderful and very refreshing!

This was very good and my husband loved it! I didn't have celaric root so I chopped up regular celery and it was crisp, crunchy and sweet yet tangy. A real light treat!
