I was hell bent on trying a classic french celeriac (celery root) salad for thanksgiving dinner and then saw Chef John Besh making something with crab- crab maison?- with similar ingredients. I am wondering if combining crab works and also if there are other vegies that I could add in with the celeriac to boost its volume and add interesting crunches without detracting from the basic flavor.
I was thinking of parnsips, rutabaga and daikon- is it advisable to eat them raw? Also, I now discovered that the crab is all gone at my market. Any ideas or suggestions for replacements? Had my heart set on this :)
