Cutting the celery root into small matchstick sized pieces is the secret to this tasty salad. We’ve been eating more raw vegetables lately and this salad was one that we really enjoyed.

  3. Place the matchstick pieces directly into water with lemon juice so that the celery does not become yellowed.

  5. Peel the avocado and cut in into small pieces.
  6. Cut the mango in half, peel, and cut one half into small pieces.
