Ingredient list

Ingredients for Servings



2 tbsp apple or pear cider vinegar

1-ˇ‐2 tbsp honey

1 tsp Dijon mustard (optional)

3-ˇ‐4 tbsp olive oil, (or hemp oil or alternative)

Salt and pepper to taste

3 medium carrots

1 small celery root (also known as celeriac)

2 cups arugula (also known as rocket)

ó cup sliced almonds, toasted (optional)

Make vinaigrette by placing vinegar, honey and mustard in bowl. Whisk in oil and season with salt and

pepper and set aside. Wash and dry the arugula. Peel and trim carrots and celery root and grate. You

may want to wait and grate the celery root at the last minute, as it tends to oxidize and turn slightly

brown. Toss the arugula, carrots, celery root and half the almonds together with half of the vinaigrette.

Season the salad with more salt and pepper and more vinaigrette if desired. Sprinkle with the remaining

almonds and serve!

Buying through the Ottawa Valley Food Co-op (OVFC) is important to me. By making a monthly pick up, I not only save on gas driving around the county picking up food, I know where it comes from. Having a relationship with producers, close by, means that if I have a concern about a product I know where to go for answers. Local producers live in the community and pay taxes here. They are invested and that feels right. I also have a better chance at obtaining food and products that are more healthful and less likely to harm me and the place I live.

It just makes so much sense.
