Pear & Celery Root Slaw

WebMD Recipe from

Pear & Celery Root Slaw

Pears, celery root, carrots and onion combine in this flavorful fall slaw recipe. Use underripe pears to keep the texture crisp. Cutting the pears and celery root by hand into little matchsticks makes a prettier salad, but go ahead and shred them with a box grater if you’re in a hurry.

This Recipe Is:
Prep: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes
  • 1/4   cup
    low-fat mayonnaise
  • 2   tablespoons
    cider vinegar
  • 1   teaspoon
  • 1/2   teaspoon
    caraway seeds
  • 1/4   teaspoon
  • 1/4   teaspoon
    freshly ground pepper
  • 2  
    slightly underripe pears, cut into matchsticks (about 4 cups)
  • 1  
    small celery root, peeled (see Tips), cut into matchsticks (about 1 cup)
  • 1   cup
    julienne-cut carrots, (see Tips) or 2 medium carrots, cut into matchsticks
  • 1/4   cup
    very thinly sliced red onion
  1. Whisk mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, caraway seeds, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add pears, celery root, carrots and onion and toss to coat. Serve at room temperature or chilled.


To peel celery root, remove the thick skin with a knife or use a vegetable peeler and peel around the root at least three times to make sure to remove the layer of the fibrous skin. Look for peeled and precut carrots, called “julienne-cut,” with other prepared vegetables in the produce department.
