Viviana's Chilean Curly Celery Salad

This Chilean salad is a family tradition for Viviana whenever a large meat course is the main event. It is especially wonderful alongside ham, roast turkey, or chicken. 

The nutrition facts were created at Calorie Count!

Viviana’s Chilean Curly Celery Salad
Serves two


2 stalks celery
Pinch salt
1/8 t fresh cracked black pepper
2 t lemon juice, fresh squeezed is always best
2 t olive oil
1/4 cup black olives, cut into thick slices


Cut the rinsed and dried celery into 2 inch lengths across the grain. Then slice each piece into three or four lengths cutting from top to bottom - do not cut all the way to the top. Place the slices in a bowl, cover with very cold water, add a few ice cubes, and allow to sit for about an hour or so until the celery pieces curl. The thinner the slices, the greater the curl.

Drain the celery and pat dry. Toss with salt, pepper, lemon juice, and olive oil. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Add the olives and toss gently.

    Healthline just published a visualization of your daily value of sodium. In the chart, you can see what half of your DV of salt looks like for 30 foods:

    This is very valuable content as it puts nutrition information into perspective and helps a person understand how much sodium is actually in their food. I thought this would be of interest to your audience and wanted to see if you would include this as a resource on your page:

    If you do not believe this would be a good fit for a resource on your site, even sharing this on your social communities would be a great alternativeto help get the word out.

    Thanks for your time reviewing. Please let me know your thoughts and if there are any questions I can answer.

    All the best,
