This celery root salad is a favorite of mine! I use a very special ingredient for this one that literally just takes this salad to a whole nother level. It’s a true Danish ingredient that we treasure really high here in Denmark and that you will probably find on the menu in most Danish Michelin restaurants!
Celery Root Salad with…
Yay, it’s liquorice that I’m all obsessed with! As in this kind of fine liquorice powder. You don’t get a very dominating taste but it simply just compliments the ingredients and brings out all the amazing flavours. It kind of in a way make the other ingredients taste even better. And then of course it has it’s own very distinctive taste that i personally just LOVE!
