Celeriac is the root of celery stalks and a very underused vegetable. Nutritional highlights include vitamin C and fibre. It's a good source of sodium, potassium, folic acid and vitamins B1, B2 and B6 as well as calcium.
Radiccio is a crunchy, slightly spicy member of the chicory family, rich in vitamin K and phytonutrients. A nutritional powerhouse.
This is a great little salad as a starter or side dish to introduce more diversity into the diet with two little used ingredients.
1/4 celeriac, peeled into ribbons
2 blood oranges, peeled and sliced, save any juice
3-4 sprigs of thyme or mint
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
