Chicken Salad with Apple, Celery Root and Fennel

Céléri rémoulade is a classic French slaw-like salad made with celery root and mayonnaise. We built on that and turned it into this bright, fresh chicken salad. The celery root is prepared two ways: Half is cut into matchsticks, half is shredded on the large holes of a box grater. The combination heightens the salad's textural and visual appeal. You could poach and shred chicken breasts for this recipe, or you can simply shred the meat of a store-bought rotisserie chicken. Serve the salad on a bed of arugula.




Don’t peel the apple; the skin adds a touch of color. Also, don't use a sweet apple; the tartness of a Granny Smith perks up the other flavors.

20 minutes


  • ½

    cup mayonnaise

  • ¼

Great balance of flavors and textures
The fennel is what really brings this up a level.

Pardon the interruption
