Celery Root Salad with Apple Caraway and Horseradish

Notes: I’m not much of a salad person but lately we’ve found some winners. Here’s the latest. I’d never cooked with celery root before and I don’t know why. It was so nice to have a new vegetable, especially one with such a nice, light, herbal flavor. I adapted this recipe from a Cooks Illustrated recipe. Next time I’ll try adding a toasted nut or seed. Maybe pumpkin seed? I know the Veganaise is cheat. You could use soy yogurt if you wanted.
