For this stunning salad, use the thinnest setting on your mandoline to shave crisp root vegetables into delicate medallions. Miso paste is generally used to flavour soups, but here it acts as a savoury base for the simple Japanese-inspired dressing.

Ingredients

Beet and Celery Root Salad:
  • 350 g mixed golden and candy cane beets peeled
  • 200 g celery root (about half root) peeled
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
Miso Dressing:
  • 2 teaspoons white miso paste
  • 2 teaspoons hot water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon liquid honey

Method

Miso Dressing: In large bowl, whisk miso paste with hot water until smooth; gradually whisk in vegetable oil, lime juice, ginger, sesame oil and honey.

Beet and Celery Root Salad: Using mandoline, shave beets and celery root into paper-thin slices. (If beets or celery root is too large for mandoline, cut in half.) Add beets, celery root and chives to dressing; toss to coat.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: The easiest way to prep celery root is to trim both ends, then stand it on its base. Using a sharp knife, cut downward, following the contours of the root, to remove the skin.
