Low Carb French Celeriac Remoulade. 2g net carbs per serving.
It’s one of the simplest salads you will ever come across. And one of the tastiest. You can serve it as a side dish, or enjoy it for lunch in a keto bread sandwich on top of your favourite charcuterie.
This classic French dish is crisp and creamy, tangy and smooth, all at the same time. Think coleslaw, but with refined flavours and more keto-friendly.
If you’ve never had remoulade, I urge you to try my recipe. I’m pretty certain you’ll be hooked.
What is Celeriac?
Some of you may be unaccustomed to this ugly-looking vegetable, and might question if it’s suitable for the keto lifestyle. So let’s clear up any doubts.
Celeriac (celery root) is clearly a root. But not a starchy one. 100g of raw celeriac contains 2.3g* net carbs. Same as zucchini*. In comparison, cauliflower contains 4.4g* net carbs. Therefore, there’s nothing ‘not keto’ about celeriac.

Knobbly and odd-shaped, with a subtle, celery-like flavour, and nutty overtones. It can be eaten cooked or raw. The unsung hero of the vegetable world, celeriac is a delicious alternative to mash potatoes or chips. You can use it in slow-cook dishes, in coleslaw (Italian style), or as a remoulade (French style).
How to Prepare Celeriac
Using a sharp knife, top and tail the celeriac, then use a potato peeler to remove the rhino-tough skin. Alternatively, sweep down the sides with a heavy, sharp knife to remove the tough skin. By the time you’ve done this, you’ll probably have discarded about a quarter of the celeriac.
Classic remoulade calls for julienne cuts. But if you don’t have the knife skills and no tool to help you, you can alternatively grate the celeriac using a large-hole grater.
How to Make Low Carb French Celeriac Remoulade
It’s a walk in the park! Mix mayonnaise with Dijon mustard. Add celeriac, chopped cornichons (mini pickled gherkins) and capers, and stir well. That’s it! Ready to eat.
