2 cloves garlic
2 pasteurized egg yolks
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 tablespoon finely grated lemon rind
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

4 apples, cored (Fuji or Gala), cut into julienne strips
1/4 teaspoon salt
Coarsely ground black pepper
8 walnut halves, toasted
Chopped celery heart leaves, optional


  1. To prepare dressing, place garlic in a food processor. Pulse to chop. Add egg yolks, lemon juice and rind, vinegar and salt. Pulse to combine. With motor running, gradually add olive oil in a steady stream; process until dressing has thickened.
  2. To prepare salad, place celeriac, apples, salt and pepper in a large bowl; add 1 cup dressing, (you’ll have some left over). Toss to combine. Top with toasted walnuts and celery heart leaves.
