Salsify And Truffle Relish

  • Yield: About 2 cups


  • 1 pound of Salsify, peeled
  • Water to cover
  • Salt and pepper
  • Truffle oil to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped truffle pieces
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives


  • Using a sharp knife, cut the Salsify in half. Brunoise the Salsify. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Blanch the Salsify for about 2 minutes and remove from the water. Shock the Salsify in ice water for a couple of minutes. This will stop the cooking process. Drain the Salsify and pat dry. In a mixing bowl, combine the remaining ingredients together and season with salt and pepper. The relish can be used immediately or cover and refrigerate for a future use.
