Late Spring Vegetable Ceviche
This vegan late spring vegetable ceviche is made with juicy grape tomatoes, fresh corn, crisp jicama, red pepper, silky mango, zesty red onion, and scallions. The mixture soaks for 2 to 3 hours in a citrus vinaigrette made with lime juice, orange juice, cilantro, serrano peppers, olive oil, and salt. As it marinates, the vegetables soften and become infused with the flavors from the vinaigrette. The result is a salad that looks like confetti and tastes like summer. The jicama adds this amazing crunch and the mango adds just a touch of sweetness to balance the citrus. The perfect summer side!
