  • Summary

    Earthy textures make this salad as interesting to look at as it is to eat. French lentils are firmer than many other varieties, so they won't get mushy or break apart as they simmer. Don't be turned off by the gnarled appearance of celery root. Once caramelized, the vegetable's citrusy, licoricelike flavor shines.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups cold water
    • 3/4 cup French lentils
    • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 medium celery root (about 1 pound), washed well, peeled, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    • 1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 1 small shallot, minced
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
