For the salad:

Ingredients (Serves 4)

100
g
hazelnuts
100
g
almonds
1
celeriac, approx. 700 g
2
firm apples
1
bunch
tarragon
1
bunch
chives

For the vinaigrette:

Ingredients (Serves 4)

2
tablespoon
Dijon mustard
splash
soy sauce
3
tablespoon
apple cider vinegar
6
tablespoon
olive oil
6
tablespoon
Greek yogurt or sour cream
salt
pepper
  • Dissolve 2 tablespoons of salt in 100 ml of hot water, soak the nuts and almonds in the liquid for 10 minutes to soften. Preheat the oven to 140 °C.
  • For the vinaigrette, mix mustard, soy sauce and the vinegar until smooth, season with salt and pepper and whisk with olive oil until creamy. Add yogurt or cream and season to taste.
  • Peel the celeriac, split down the middle and cut into thin, half-inch slices with a large, sharp knife. Cut these into narrow sticks, like matchsticks. Alternatively, the celeriac can be sliced on a mandolin.
  • Core the apples and cut them into sticks as well. Mix everything with the vinaigrette, to avoid apples turning brown.
  • Drain the nuts and spread them on a tray lined with baking paper, roast in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the stalks from the tarragon, chop the chives, add tarragon and chives to the salad, season to taste.
  • Chop the nuts very coarsely and sprinkle over the salad.
