Can I just say that I LOVE ceviche?! I absolutely adore having a nice helping of tangy citrus, with the freshness of seafood and a hint of sweetness, piled on top of crispy tortilla chips. Paired with a refreshing Kombucha Mojito of course! Since I decided to work on creating more meat and dairy-free alternatives for some of my favorite Summer dishes, I just had to share my recipe for Vegan Ceviche that I recently came up with. It gives you all of the same flavor and texture components, minus the actual seafood. So let’s dive into what makes this recipe a new favorite for Summer entertaining.

I know you’re probably wondering how do I mimic that seafood texture. The secret is Hearts of Palm! Yes, they provide the look and the texture that is similar to squid or thinly sliced shrimp. I know it sounds crazy, but just go with it and you will see just what I’m talking about.
The ingredient that brings everything together is the Filippo Berio Robusto Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Its bold notes and pepper finish is perfect to balance out the citrus. After mixing it up really well, just add the ceviche to an empty avocado shell and drizzle with Filippo Berio Classic Balsamic Vinegar Glaze. This 100% Italian Glaze is the perfect way to top it off!
