1 small bulb of celery root
1 small onion, peeled
1 small cucumber, peeled
1 fresh tomato, chopped
1 small head of Boston or green leaf lettuce, washed
3/4 cup mustard vinaigrette
1. Cut the carrot, celery, celery root, onion and cucumber into 2 inch matchstick or 'julienne' slices using a sharp knife or mechanical cutting device. Add the chopped tomato and toss the vegetables together. Lightly season them with salt and pepper.
