Keto Celery Root Remoulade (Celeri Remoulade)

Celeriac remoulade is a popular French dish, similar to coleslaw. Remoulade is a core sauce made from adding dijon mustard to mayonnaise. For our Keto Celery Root Remoulade, we don’t have to change anything from the traditional recipe to make this low carb! This is a great side dish to serve with any meal. 

Celery Root 

Celery root is an ugly vegetable, but don’t be discouraged by its appearance. This is a delicious and versatile vegetable that is high in vitamin K, vitamin C and fiber. 

Before starting a keto diet, I had no idea that a celery root was even a thing. I think a lot of us in North America grew up with bland steamed or boiled vegetables. We were all taught that fat was bad! We now know that this couldn’t be further from the truth. Fat equals flavor, and this is exactly what makes Keto Celery Root Remoulade taste so good! 



Remoulade is a European core sauce made of mayonnaise, mustard and lemon juice (or vinegar). Making this sauce naturally keto-friendly! This sauce can be eaten as is, or flavoured to your liking. Some flavoring suggestions are: 

  • Curry 
  • Capers
  • Chives
  • Tarragon 
  • Shallots 
  • Pickles 
  • Vinegar 
  • Horseradish 
  • Anchovies 
  • Paprika


The Process

Our Keto Celery Root Remoulade is very easy to make. Combine the ingredients for the sauce to start and set aside. Working quickly, peel the celery root and grate it coarsely. Have a lemon peel on hand to rub over the celery root as your grating, this will prevent the celeriac from turning brown. Next, coarsely grate the celery root manually or with a food processor. Combine the grated celery root with the sauce and serve immediately or store in an airtight container. This side dish pairs wonderfully with our easy Keto White Wine Chicken.
