Watermelon Radish & Celery Root Salad

with a sharp honey mustard dressing ~ top with Cider & Spice Roasted Nuts

Watermelon radish, celery root and seasonal greens lightly tossed through a warming mustard dressing ~ elegant + straightforward. 


You can make this salad in advance; it will store well; keep the dressing separate and dress just before serving.  Cider & Spice Roasted Nuts is a great topping as your get that warm, savoury sweet combo of mustard, maple & spices – it works + it adds protein and healthy fats and makes the salad a little more substantial as a meal – apple would be a great addition too!
