  • 1 cup celeriac 100g peeled weight
  • ½ large apple
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley 4tbsp

For the dressing

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp walnut oil
  • ¼ tsp Dijon mustard


  • Whisk together the lemon juice, oils and mustard for the dressing first so that it is ready to use.
  • Peel the celeriac, removing all the outer layer and any dark, hairy indents. Peel and core the apple. Coarsely shred both and toss with the dressing to prevent browning.
  • Cook the bacon as you prefer (eg under broiler, in oven/in pan - this can be done ahead) and cut into slices. Roughly chop the parsley.
  • Add the bacon, pumpkin seeds and parsley to the apple and celeriac and toss to combine well. Serve.
