Apio Palta is a cold Chilean salad of crunchy-crisp celery and creamy avocados. A simple dressing of fresh lemon juice and olive oil is all that Apio Palta requires. It goes well with almost any entree, and is a fine light lunch all by itself, delightful in taste and texture.

Apio Palta Recipe-

  1. Peel the avocados and cut the flesh into small pieces, then place in a mixing bowl.
  2. Pour the lemon juice over the avocado, and stir carefully, to not break up avocado pieces.
  3. Wash and pat dry the celery stalks; trim off the leaves and tough stalk bottoms; slice into 1/2″ pieces.
  4. Combine the celery with the avocados, mixing together gently. Drizzle with olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Mix gently once more, and serve your Apio Palta.
