Ingredients

For the dressing

For the salad

Method

  • STEP 1

    Make the dressing first. Put the mustard, honey, garlic, vinegar and some seasoning in a cup, and whisk in the oil in a steady stream. Stir in the cream, then check the seasoning – it should be sweet-sour.

  • STEP 2

    Put some of the lemon juice in a mixing bowl. Peel the celeriac and cut the flesh into matchsticks, tossing these in the lemon juice as you go to stop the flesh discolouring.

  • STEP 3

    Quarter the fennel and remove any coarse outer leaves. Trim the tips, reserving any tufty fronds. Cut out the core from each piece. Using a very sharp knife or a mandolin, slice the fennel lengthways – the slices should be almost transparent. Toss with the celeriac and add some more lemon juice.

  • STEP 4

    Cut the onion as finely as possible (it’s best to do this on a mandolin too). Halve the apples, core and cut into matchsticks (there’s no need to peel them). Add to the bowl with the onions, and add a little more lemon juice (to keep the apple from turning brown). Chop any fennel fronds and add along with the dill. Toss with the dressing.

  • STEP 5

    Divide the salad between eight plates with some gravadlax alongside, or serve the gravadlax and offer the salad in a large bowl.
