Officially, May is the month to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and Mother’s Day. Unofficially, I believe mothers should be celebrated everyday because we are a pretty awesome species! So this May, Serve the special woman in your life Super Foods “Ceviche” to help keep her fueled for any task at hand. Ceviche traditionally describes a Spanish appetizer of raw marinated fish; my version of this dish contains an array of healthy, antioxidant-rich raw marinated vegetables and fruits that are both delicious tasting and good for you. What’s not to love about avocados and strawberries? Enjoy on any of the Key Diets.
- One whole avocado, sliced
- Two cups sliced strawberries
- One yellow or red pepper, thinly sliced
- Two cups cherry tomatoes, halved
- One cup diced cucumbers
- One cup diced sugar snap peas or snow peas
- Four green onion stalks, thinly diced
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
- 1/4 cup olive or avocado oil
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- Juice from one whole lime
- Zest from whole lime
For the dressing, whisk together the oil, garlic, lime juice and zest. Season with salt.
In a separate bowl, add all the vegetables together, except the cilantro. Gently stir in the dressing, refrigerate and let it marinate until ready to serve, up to 4 hours.
On a serving platter, arrange the marinated “ceviche” and top with fresh cilantro. Sprinkle cracked pepper over the entire dish. You are now ready to serve it up to your Mother!
Variations: This dish makes a perfect meal served up with a piece of grilled salmon, a skewer of grilled prawns, or some “raw fish”. For a Spanish kick on Cinco de Mayo, add jalapeno slices and diced jicama.
