Ceviche de Verduras – Vegetarian Ceviche Salad

The exciting flavours of a ceviche marinade work just as well for vegetables as they do for seafood, and it would be a shame for those who don’t like seafood to miss out on them! Fresh mozzarella cheese replaces the raw fish in this healthy salad, which also has the traditional marinated onions, hot chilli peppers, corn, and other colourful vegetables.
