Es DELICIOSA, a mis hijas les encanto y es una buena idea para que consuman mas apio con gusto, Si no les gusta mucho el picante pueden ponerle menos cantidad de jalapeño, pero eso si no dejen de incluirlo aunque sea uno le da un excelente sabor yo lo hice la primera vez igual a la receta y luego la hice variando la cantidad de jalapeño. espectacular
