A healthy twist on a classic lunch recipe. This tangy and crunchy salad is a perfect accompaniment to a buffet of cold cuts or perfect as a side dish.
What is Celeriac?
Celeriac is a root vegetable closely related to celery. This vegetable is crunchy, like a carrot, with a subtle celery flavour, less-watery which goes well with the sweetness of carrots.
Why Greek Yoghurt?
Greek yoghurt is an excellent source of calcium, contains probiotics, which support a healthy bacterial balance in the gut.
The difference between the regular yoghurt and Greek yoghurt is that the latest is a thicker, creamier yoghurt with twice the protein content. Greek yoghurt is strained three times, so most of the liquid is removed.
