Simple and Tasty Ceviche

Martha Price

By

The first time I tasted ceviche was several years ago when my husband brought some home that a co-worker had made. I was hooked. I looked through my cookbooks for the simplest ceviche recipe I could find (because I figured I wouldn't make it if it wasn't simple), and settled on a recipe I found in a cookbook that I got free at the supermarket with a purchase of Dash laundry detergent. There may be better ceviche recipes out there, but I have yet to stray from this one!
I eat this on crackers, or just by itself!
