Celery Root Salad

Celery Root Salad

Celery Root Salad is also called celery remoulade , but this is misleading because there is no remoulade sauce used. I used crème fraiche, mayonnaise and mustard. The salad is delicious on crackers or bread and perfect as a side dish with fish.

VegiRoni Salad

VegiRoni Salad

One thing let to another. I was making a simple macaroni salad and then I had some leftover Pico de Gallo and I thought to my self hmm. How would that taste if I add that to the macaroni salad. And I was right it’s delicious. VegiRoni Salad is one of my favorite salads now. You don’t have to add the Pico de Gallo you can eat it without it to. Your choice.
