Open-Face Chicken Sandwich with Celery Root Salad

Knobbly celery root (also called celeriac) looks a little wild, but it has a mild, woodsy taste. Here we’ve used it to make the classic French salad céleri rémoulade, but given it an unexpected role as a topping for chicken sandwiches.

Bonus: Sole or flounder can be used instead of chicken.
