Chilean Celery and Avocado Salad

ingredients:
6-8 large ribs of celery, well washed and sliced horizontally about 1/4 inch thick
4 large pieces organic romaine, washed well and torn into bite sized pieces
1 large avocado, mashed
2 large limes, juiced
pinch of salt

combine all ingredients in a large non-reactive bowl. serve as a side or eat as a snack. serves 4.

analysis:
celery and lettuce are cool, sweet and bitter and drain fire. avocado is sweet and heavy and nourishes yin and cools the digestive tract; its heavy nature may also harmonize the liver by anchoring floating yang. lime is cooling, sweet and sour and soothes the liver by coursing it.
