Vegan Cauliflower Ceviche

Summertime always seems to bring about a craving for ceviche. This was most likely brought on by a cauliflower version I had at a friends birthday brunch last month. So the only rational next step was to recreate it at home just to curb the craving.

This yummy and vibrant vegan cauliflower ceviche recipe is a delightful plant-based twist on the classic seafood ceviche. The combination of tender cauliflower florets, tangy lime juice, and a medley of fresh vegetables has been the perfect poolside snack. I took a batch to a pool party recently thinking no one would take interested in the bowl full of veggies but I was shocked when several friends sought me out to give compliments. So trust me when I say once you try it you'll find yourself whipping this up all summer long!
