Pear & Celery Root Slaw

November/December 2011

Your rating: None Average: 4 (4 votes)

Pears, celery root, carrots and onion combine in this flavorful fall slaw recipe. Use underripe pears to keep the texture crisp. Cutting the pears and celery root by hand into little matchsticks makes a prettier salad, but go ahead and shred them with a box grater if you’re in a hurry.

New lead characters in a traditional side dish

Made this twice now, it went over bigger with the relatives than I anticipated. A nice change to the run-of-the-mill cole slaw mom has been making for the past 25 Thanksgiving dinners. They had a hard time guessing the ingredients, but were plesantly surprised. Everyone wanted a link to this recipe.

Pears are upstaged too often by apples in the fall. This is a recipe tailored just for them.
