Celery Root is not the lower portion of the common green celery stalk, but rather a plant also known as celeriac, the bulb of which does grow underground. Its gnarled brown skin covers crisp, creamy white flesh that's good grated raw into salads.


  • 2/3 cup nonfat sour cream
  • 3 tbsp chopped green onions
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 cup shredded unpeeled red apple
  • 2 cup shredded peeled celery root
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 2 tbsp shelled sunflower seeds


In a medium bowl, combine sour cream, onions and lemon juice; mix well. Stir in all remaining ingredients.
Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate up to 2 hours before serving. (Shredded apple will discolor if stored for a longer period of time.)
