Freshly ground black pepper

One 1-pound celery root, peeled and cut into matchsticks

Finely chopped parsley or celery leaves

Use a fork to mash the anchovies into a paste in a mixing bowl. Add the vinegar, mustard and a pinch of salt, whisking to incorporate. While whisking, slowly drizzle in the oil and then whisk in the crème fraîche, to form a thickened dressing. Season lightly with salt and pepper. The yield is about 1 cup.

Add the celery root and toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle with parsley or fresh celery leaves and serve.
