Vegan ceviche, a Latin-American specialty, is a perfect and refreshing first course or appetizer, especially when it’s made all-vegetable.Traditionally, it’s made with seafood and vegetables, but taking the fish out of the equation, it’s still really good, with its salty and citrusy flavors. It’s a great appetizer for most any kind of Southwestern- or Mexican-style meal.
