Directions

For the mayonnaise: Combine the eggs and mustard in the bowl of a food processor and puree, or whisk together by hand. Whisking constantly or with the motor running, add the oil in a slow, steady stream. When it has all been incorporated/emulsified, add the vinegar and hot pepper sauce and/or sugar, mixing until just combined.

For the remoulade: Fill a medium bowl with cold water and add the lemon juice and salt, stirring to combine. Add the celery root julienne and let it soak for 5 to 10 minutes.

Drain the celery root and place in a medium mixing bowl. Add the shallots, parsley, chives and mayonnaise, tossing to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
