Farmer's Market Ceviche

by Laura


I recently had dinner at a friend's house and brought what I considered to be the disappointing contents of this week's Farm Fresh delivery. My friends Erin and Lisa are very handy in the kitchen and they suggested a salad made up with my rejected vegetables, a little salt and pepper, cilantro and lime juice. Lisa came up with the name "Farmer's Market Ceviche," which I love. It was very refreshing, extremely easy and has zero fat! 

1 zucchini

1 spring onion (looks like a scallion with a tumor)

1 bunch of radishes

1 bunch of carrots

Juice of 2 limes

Salt and pepper to taste

Cilantro (optional)

Slice the zucchini into very thing coin-shaped slices and place them in a colander. Sprinkle generously with salt and let them sweat out some of their moisture and bitterness for a bit (however long it takes you to slice up the rest of the ingredients, sipping wine along the way) in the sink. While the zucchini sits, slice the onion, radishes and carrots, all in thin slices. Rinse zucchini and pat dry. Place all four ingredients in a large bowl and mix with lime juice. Top with cilantro and add salt and pepper to taste. 

Good stuff.
