Scallop, Celeriac & Beetroot Salad

Scallop Celeriac Beet Salad

Sexy Scallop Salad

Looking for a super simple, yet elegant salad for this holiday season? Here is one of my favorites! Crunchy, salty and sweet, this salad is perfect to start one of those heavy, sleep inducing holiday meals.

This simple raw salad or slaw can be made and dressed in advance. The seared scallops should be made to order and placed on the salad while they are still hot. Some of vinaigrette can be reserved for drizzling over and around the salad after it’s plated.

Salad (Makes enough for 4-6 people)

1 celery root / celeriac; peeled, julienne
1 golden beet; peeled, julienne
1 candy cane beet; peeled, julienne
1 firm tart red apples; julienne
1/2 C dried cranberries

2 lemons; zest

Vinaigrette

1 C  olive oil
1/2 C walnut oil
1/2 C apple cider vinegar
1/4 C  honey

Mix all salad ingredients and dress with vinaigrette right away to ensure that apples do not turn brown.
