pink beetroot, celeriac salad with walnuts and raisins


My husband does not like celeriac or beetroot so he was very sceptical when I started making this salad…  now he can’t stop eating it (!) Myself, I love beetroot and celeriac, but not raisins, this salad is probably the only way for me to eat and actually enjoy them.
