From the Test Kitchen

We’re celebrating the flavors of fall in this dish, which features a pair of delectable, seasonal sides: rich mashed sweet potatoes and a celeriac-apple sauté. Once peeled, celeriac—or celery root—has plenty of crisp flavor and texture to offer. (Slicing off its tough exterior to create flat sides is an easy way to prep it.) Sautéed with tart apple, then finished with salty-sweet pecans, parsley and chives, the celeriac perfectly balances the warm flavors of the salmon’s barbecue-style spice rub.
