I loved this! I followed the recipe exactly the first time, and it's great. I enjoy improvising off a given recipe, so next time I used half celery root and half jicama, and also used baby arugula because my market was out of both frisee and radicchio. The dressing is the perfect balance of acidity and unctuousness. item not reviewed by moderator and published
