Vegetarian Ceviche That Looks Not-So-Vegetarian

I use hearts of palm to mimic octopus rings. it's really pretty (even though i always hated octopus). It requires no cooking and all the flavor. Amounts vary with size of vegetables.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut hearts of palm in circles and pop out the middle. (i keep the middle in the dish but the little loops look like octopus).
  2. Chop everything else and mix together.
  3. Serve in martini or margarita glasses with a little cilantro and fresh black pepper on top.

I made this recipe fro mostly fresh veggies, and it was AWESOME! Can't wait to make it again! I used red pepper, which made it quite colorful! I chopped up a small piece of jalapeno pepper, added it to the squeezed lime juice in a small bowl, then drained the liquid into the cut-up vegs. So it was just a wee bit spicy, but not overpowering.

Like another reviewer, I added all of the optional ingredients. Since I wanted to keep the leftovers around for a few days I seeded the tomatoes and cucumber. My limes were pretty dry so I juiced 1/2 a lemon and tossed the chopped avocado with it before mixing so the avocado didn't go brown. I had an orange bell pepper so I used that instead of green; it added to the pretty colors of this dish. Absolutely LOVED this and will be making it weekly throughout the summer as a great low-cal side for grilled meats!

I made this dish for a New Year's Eve party and again for a New Year's Day party. It was a hit at both. The second time I made it without jalapenos because the hostess can't eat any spicy peppers. It was still good, but I did double the onion to compensate for the missing jalapenos. I served it with good quality tortilla chips. I added this recipe to my cookbook because I'll be making it again!
