Ceviche Salad

Stephanie Mabry


I had this dish several years ago at a restaurant that we visited on our way back from Las Vegas. It was hot outside and this salad was cold and fresh. It really was delicious. As soon as I got home, I had to try and recreate it.

Don't let the term ceviche scare you. Simply, ceviche is a dish made from chopped seafood that's marinated in fresh juice (like lime or lemon) and spices. As the dish marinates, the seafood absorbs the flavors and becomes opaque. This version uses shrimp and it's a refreshing salad. Simple to make, it's tangy with a kick of spice. We love the little bit of crunch crushed tortilla chips add. Wow everyone with this tasty dish at your next cocktail party or luncheon. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
