Vegan Recipe: Celery Root with Walnuts

Celery root is one of my new favorite veggies to play with. This dish could be a nice light lunch or make a great side salad. The dressing is so creamy and delicious. The key for hitting this dish out of the park is slicing the celery root really thinly, invest in a mandoline or a really sharp knife to ensure you get thin strips.
